MERLIN project: questionnaire to gather insights about individual perceptions, experiences and attitudes to freshwater nature-based solutions

Thursday, July 14, 2022

The MERLIN project (Mainstreaming Ecological Restoration of freshwater-related ecosystems in a Landscape context: INnovation, upscaling and transformation) aims at mainstreaming nature-based solutions as key approach to deal with current societal challenges, including climate change, biodiversity loss and other sector specific issues. Further information on the project can be found at: 

This questionnaire aims to gather insights from sector experts about their individual perceptions, experiences and attitudes to freshwater nature-based solutions. The questionnaire also aims to understand the current state, opportunities and barriers for implementing nature-based solutions across Europe. The results from the questionnaire will provide some information to support sectors to mainstream aquatic restoration in Europe. Please answer in English, add additional information as you wish, feel free to skip questions or use ‘I do not know’. We estimate it would take you approximately 15 minutes to complete this questionnaire but if you cannot fully complete it at one time, you should be able to return to your unfinished questionnaire by using the same browser and device.
Your response to the questionnaire represents your personal and expert view and not that of the organization where you work. Please respond to the questions from the perspective of the sector where you specialize e.g. agriculture, navigation, water supply, insurance, hydropower, peat extraction, or other closely related sector.
