Natura 2000 Impact Assessment


This assessment aims at protecting the NATURA 2000 network of the European Union. It is to be implemented according to provisions defined in the Berlin Nature Conservation Law. Both for projects and plans it has to be examined whether an environmental evaluation is required. This is always requisite in those cases where specific goals of conserving an area can be prejudiced considerably. The result of such an environmental evaluation is also linked to binding legal consequences.
