Saxony

Location: Saxony, Germany

Objective: integration of the ecological network in the state wide spatial plan

Problems: Identifying priority areas of the ecological network; accomplishing an agreed statutory plan

Solutions: First, sound ecological analysis; second, preparation of a detailed internal working document; third, consultation with stakeholders according to the legal provision for adopting a statutory spatial plan (regional plan)

Results: A statutory, legally binding spatial plan (regional plan) that includes far-reaching, extensive provisions for a regional ecological network

Critical factors of success:  very detailed and well documented analysis of the landscape ecology resulted in legally binding stipulations for protection

Key learning points: the design of a EN map and its integration in the spatial plans can contribute to guide the allocation of agri environment funds

Actors: staff of the Saxon Ministry of the Interior which is in charge of spatial planning

Communication: Publication of the adopted plan

Financing: State budget
