SedAlp focuses on the integrated management of sediment transport in Alpine basins. It is directed towards an effective reduction of sediment-related risk while promoting the enhancement of riverine ecosystems and reducing the impacts of hydropower plants.
The SedAlp project includes piloting actions in various representative Alpine river basins of all involved countries and contributes to sediment and wood transfer monitoring in a large set of Alpine catchments, in order to understand spatial and temporal variability of processes.

Based on process understanding, planning, warning and predictive tools will be provided together with sediment and wood management recommendations for hazard mitigation and protection of people. SedAlp aims at developing strategy policy and actions for the improvement of sediment continuity in Alpine river basins.
