SUSTAINABLE POLICY

Flanders has wonderful nature, numerous forests and spacious parks. However, these green oases are under a lot of pressure. The Agency for Nature and Forests works every day to conserve, protect and develop these nature areas, forests and parks. The Agency for Nature and Forests builds a sustainable future, one with livable towns, a charming countryside and places where nature can be itself.

The forests, nature areas and parks managed by the Agency for Nature and Forests, obviously appeal most to the imagination. The Agency does so much more than that, however: advising, planning, developing, subsidising, protecting animal and plant species, coordinating game management and fisheries, organising campaigns and activities to increase the support for nature. The Agency for Nature and Forests has its feet firmly in society and does not operate on its own initiative. The Agency for Nature and Forests invests in sustainable policy and supports partners who work on more and better nature.

The Agency for Nature and Forests manages more than 37,000 hectares of parks, forests and nature areas. The agency opens most of the forest and nature areas and parks to the public. Signposted paths and information signs guide the visitors. Many areas have paths for cyclists or horsemen, or provide the possibility to discover nature in the wake of a guide who expertly conducts visitors through the area. Moreover, several areas have been made accessible to people with limited mobility. Furthermore, in their capacity of gateways to nature, the Flemish visitors centres and forest museums are the ideal points of departure for a day of relaxation in nature. The Agency for Nature and Forests is part of the Flemish government.
