BAF – Biotope area factor
Berlin´s landscape program formulates basic goals and measures to promote high quality urban development with respect to the ecosystem, protection of biotopes and species, the appearance of the landscape, and recreational use.
In the city center, using the “biotope area factor” (BAF) makes a particular approach to securing “green qualities” possible. In Berlin it can be established in landscape plans as an ordinance.
