European Railways: Strategy and Actions for Biodiversity (REVERSE Project)
This Strategy and Actions document sets out our collective vision for protecting and enhancing the wildlife value of the European rail network. We also include case study examples of the positive, practical actions that rail companies are already taking to significantly benefit Europe’s declining biodiversity and ecosystems. The document has been produced as part of the International Union of Railways (UIC) rEvERsE project which explores the ecological effects of railways on wildlife. This project is funded by a consortium of railway infrastructure managers from nine UIC European members (Austria, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom, see Figure 2). In addition, UIC also received support from other UIC member countries including Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal and Switzerland.
