UIC is seeking solutions and best practice on managing rail lineside in an environmentally responsible way. The Ecological Effects of Railways on Wildlife (rEvERsE) project will run until 2023 and aims to improve understanding of the impact of railways on biodiversity.

In partnership with the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (UKCEH), UIC and its members will develop a biodiversity action plan and international guidance for railway operators and managers to support, protect and enhance our natural heritage.

Members are invited to submit their responses to the UIC survey on biodiversity via the survey available at https://uic.org/events/reverse-survey. Responses can be submitted up to 12 February.

For any questions in relation to the survey and the REVERSE project, please contact Pınar Yılmazer, Senior Advisor, Sustainable Land Use Sector at yilmazer@uic.org.
