Biodiversity measures
Austria is part of the EU’s ambitious biodiversity strategy. Protected areas are to be established for at least 30 per cent of the land and sea in Europe by 2030, with strict protection for a third of these areas. The programme for this strategy also defines stricter protection for the remaining primary and old-growth forests in the EU and a new legal framework for nature restoration. In addition, the use of chemical pesticides is to be cut in half and organic farming is to be used on a quarter of agricultural land. Furthermore, the Austrian federal government plans to create a biodiversity fund for the implementation of the biodiversity strategy defined in the government programme.
