On the 1 January 2017 the new Nature Conservation Act (Wet natuurbescherming) will replace the Nature Conservation Act 1998, the Flora & Fauna Act and the Forestry Act. The purpose of the new legislation is to create a framework which is in line with European directives and transfer the care competence regarding flora and fauna from the Dutch state to the provinces. Stibbe has organized a seminar (in Dutch) on the 12 January 2017 to outline the most important insights into and consequences of the new provisions.
During the seminar our speakers will discuss various subjects including: 1) protection of nature conservation areas 2) protection of species and 3) legal proceedings and monitoring. There will also be time for questions and discussion about these topics.
