Federal Nature Conservation Fund
For the current legislative period, the new federal government has decided to expand and bundle project funding for nature conservation and landscape management. The aim is to implement even more effective, targeted approaches that directly or indirectly strengthen biodiversity. The new Federal Nature Conservation Fund was established for this purpose. It combines the existing programmes Federal Biological Diversity Programme, Germany’s Blue Belt Programme, chance.natur (large-scale nature conservation projects) and Testing and development projects, as well as the Wilderness Fund. In addition, the new National Species Recovery Programme has been in place since 2022.
