A movie realized by Onema
To ensure that ecological issues are better taken into account in the territorial implementation of water policies (river-basin planning at the district (RBMP) and sub-basin levels, programmes of measures, major-river plans, Natura 2000 goals documents for sites with aquatic environments, etc.), Onema assists the Water agencies in preparing biological aspects via its technical skills in biology and hydromorphology.
Onema assists in restoration operations for aquatic environments around the country. With the Water agencies, active on the river-basin level, it stimulates the emergence of local project-management capabilities and provides them with help in defining restoration goals and means. Onema also participates in operations to restore carrying capacities for migratory fish, the symbols of the ecological quality of rivers. It provides its know-how on how to improve aquatic environments and restore ecological continuity, and it contributes to evaluating restoration programmes.
