Investeren in natuur: naar pilots voor een bredere vorm van habitatbanking

Rob Bugter, Janneke Vader, Mark van den Hoven

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


For the Dutch provinces it is especially a challenge to lift the contribution of private persons and
businesses to Nature from margin to mainstream. There is interest from private parties to invest in
Nature, but this interest is turned into actual implementation far too little. Commissioned by the
Ministry of Economic Affairs (EZ) we explored the possibilities for applying the habitat banking
instrument, originally devised to facilitate the offset of damages to Nature, in three possible pilot
areas. This explorative study was carried out between November 2015 and May 2016. Knowledge
transfer to the commissioner has meanwhile occurred, before publication date.
