This technical note on river restoration explores the concept of Fluvial Territory as a space of sufficient width and continuity to retain or regain the hydro-‐geomorphologic dynamic, obtain a continuous riverside passageway that would ensure ecological diversity (Habitats Directive 1992/43/CE) and the bioclimatic function of the river system, comply with a good ecological state (Water Directive 2000/60/CE), laminate the avenues naturally (Flood Directive 2007/60/CE), solve management problems of floodable areas, as well as improving and consolidating the landscape around the river.
