Seeing the forest for the trees again
Every year, significant amounts are invested in Dutch nature policy and management. For example: you can apply for a subsidy from the province for measures to protect or improve nature, measures to raise the quality of nature in our country to a higher level. In order to determine and test the quality of nature, we used to use a document with a lot of criteria for the state of all kinds of types of nature throughout the country. That wasn’t very clear or practical. That is why BIJ12 - the administrative organization of the provinces - asked Geodan to create order from chaos.
