2 ‘Catchment consciousness’ enters regulatory frameworks: mantra urgently seeks metrics For those who consider ‘catchment consciousness’ to be a ‘soft-science’ term, its harder, internationally recognised companion is the ‘ecosystem approach’, first deployed by the UN Convention on Biodiversity. For rivers, especially their physical habitat, the ecosystem approach has now entered regulatory frameworks administered by the EU. Pedroli et al.

Cash-strapped institutions find partnerships needed to finance environmental improvement; community projects save on incentives and internalise risks by enthusiastically accepting ongoing responsibility. Regulatory metrics may be used sympathetically to promote local schemes. r ‘Maniacs’ working through a vast variety of live experiments in river restoration need to monitor outcomes and refine our methodologies as an aid to ‘blue skies’ science; r Those defining metrics need to be aware of and to access the best evidence from both the mantra and the mania and be prepared to work in an adaptive framework as the offerings from these sources are updated.
