The training handbook is primarily developed to address the restoration of wetlands in Central and Eastern Europe and, therefore, encompasses mostly case studies from the temperate zone. The book emphasised that these ecosystems function in a larger ecological entity – the landscape. To be truely sustainable, the management of wetlands has to be incorporated into a system of integreated land and water use and, indeed, into the socio-economic system of each country.
