Ecological effectivity nature-laws

The ecological effects of the Nature Law are not sufficiently evaluated during the general evaluation of the Nature Law. Additional research is carried out to get insight into this ecological effectiveness.


Little is known about the ecological effects of nature protection legislation. In 2008, nature conservation laws were evaluated, but parliament and civil society organizations called for additional research into the ecological effects of nature legislation. The outcomes should be involved in questions about new legislation.

The main question of this project is whether the application of the nature conservation laws leads to the ecological impact that the legislator has in mind. These include the Flora and Fauna act, the Nature Conservation law and the Forest act. The interventions and ecological effects were studied in relation to the legislation. The findings can be found in a final report.
