The article “Voorjaarsschoonmaak in het natuurbeschermingsrecht: minder geld, minder regels, minder bescherming” (translation: Spring cleaning in nature conservation legislation: less money, less rules, less protection) was written by Ernestine Meijer, a former employee at Climate Focus, and Wienke Zwier of the Dutch law firm AKD,  and published in the March issue of the Dutch Law Journal “Tijdschrift voor Milieu en Recht”.

The article reviews the recent proposal for a new Dutch nature conservation law, paying special attention to the compatibility of this law with the European Habitats and Birds Directives as well as the Bern Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats.
