Welcome to the website of the integrated LIFE project "LiLa Living Lahn", project number IP-LIFE14/DE/022. The project is funded by the EU Commission with funds from the EU-LIFE program.
Here you can learn more about ‘LiLa- Living Lahn River’, the first integrated German LIFE project that aims to enhance the ecological health and connectivity of the river itself while simultaneously enriching the quality of life along the river. By the project activities, an added value will be created for the region by developing synergies between environmental concerns (water ecology, flood protection and nature conservation) as well as recreational use (tourism, sport).
Most recently, we installed a digital fish trap, the so-called riverwatcher. It scans the fishes passing by with a camera and makes the recordings available online.
On 1 February 2017 the Federal Cabinet adopted the Federal Program "Blue Ribbon Germany". This creates a further perspective for the federal waterways and implements an important traffic and environmental policy agreement from the coalition agreement.
A second status conference will take place in Berlin on May 17, 2017 to present the key points and the technical basics.
