Towards a new vision for nature and nature policy
There have been far-reaching changes in nature and landscape policy and flanking policy areas since the start of the Rutte-1 Cabinet. The complexity of the previous nature policy, which strongly emphasised procedural implementation of complex rules, is encountering increasing resistance in society. With the Nature Outlook 2010–2040, PBL offers policy suggestions for a new vision on nature and nature policy. A strategic vision which could put nature policy at the centre of society once again and provide a solid basis for the multiple uses of nature and the landscape.
- Base nature policy on people's motives
- Create a robust foundation of nature areas
- Anticipate changes in what society wants
- Respond to the changing use of the North Sea
- Take a strategic approach to European Policy
- Make coherent policy
These policy building blocks were based on four ideal-typical nature perspectives for 2040 that illustrate a range of options for the conservation and use of nature.
For policymakers, societal organisations and the business sector
The policy suggestions are intended for decision-makers in the various areas of public office, but also for societal organisations and the business sector. After all, there are many groups in society involved with nature and the landscape, for a wide variety of reasons.
