The riparian zone is the strip of land on either side of a waterway and
this zone acts as a buffer between the catchment land and the receiving
waterway. If wisely managed, the riparian zone can attenuate the runoff
of water and pollutants into streams thereby alleviating flooding, water
pollution and damage to stream ecosystems. In addition riparian zones
have important roles in terrestrial plant and animal ecology.
Unfortunately in many places riparian zones have been altered by forest
clearance, land development for agriculture or urban development,
drainage and flood control.

There is widespread interest in restoration of damaged riparian zones
and the better management of existing zones.

At the Intl Ecological Engineering Society's Conference in Christchurch
(25-29 Nov. 2001), four and a half hours will be allocated over 3 days
to this workshop which will discuss the engineering issues associated
with riparian management with particular emphasis onical the available
tools and information, gaps in the available information and how best to
integrate technical engineering expertise with planning and social
aspects of riparian management.

The electronic workshop extends the workshop in Christchurch via
Internet to allow participants who are going or unable to attend the
Christchurch to:
--clarify the role of engineering in riparian management
--identify significant problems that prevent prevent successful
--identify significant gaps in the available information or design tools

--discuss ways to fill these gaps
--communicate our deliberations to other conference participants
--communicate our recommendations to the wider engineering
  community and the general public
