Rli commences advisory report Reviewing nature policy

Nature is of vital importance and the worldwide decline in biodiversity is a cause of great concern. The Rli is exploring how, in the Netherlands, the worrying decline in the quality of the natural environment and biodiversity can be reversed in time to achieve the restoration of resilient nature.

With this advisory report, the Council wants to address the following main questions: What changes to nature conservation policy are desirable or necessary in view of the current understanding of the importance of biodiversity, changing climate conditions, changing values in society and of the relationship between nature conservation policy and other spatial planning interests? What consequences do these have for governance in nature conservation policy?

The advisory report Reviewing nature policy is scheduled to be issued in the beginning of 2022.
