Project Details


The aim of the project is the development of the Model for Nature Policy (MNP). This model has been developed to support the political and administrative decision-making in the field of nature, environment and space analysis at national and provincial scale.

 The MNP is a species-based biodiversity model that has been developed in order to assess the effects of biodiversity policies. Whilst it is a relatively simple biodiversity model, it successively models habitat suitability and persistence, for a set of protected species. It expresses output through policy-relevant indicators regarding national biodiversity targets.

The developement of the MNP aims at a balance between credibility, saliency and legitimacy  (Cash et al 2003). For 2016 the MNP will be improved with respect to the new national nature policy systems (Beheertypen). Furthermore the focus will be on consolidation.
