The DPSIR Framework and a Pressure-Oriented Water Quality Monitoring Approach to Ecological River Restoration

  title={The DPSIR Framework and a Pressure-Oriented Water Quality Monitoring Approach to Ecological River Restoration},
  author={Xingqiang Song and Bj{\"o}rn M. Frostell},
Without monitoring anthropogenic pressures on the water environment, it is difficult to set realistic river restoration targets in relation to water quality. Therefore a more holistic approach is needed to systematically explore the links between socio-economic drivers and observed water quality-related impacts on river ecosystems. Using the DPSIR (Drivers-Pressures-State of the Environment-Impacts-Responses) framework, this study linked ecological river restoration with the socio-economic… CONTINUE READING
