Project details

Final evaluation PLENUM Schwäbische Alb

PLENUM stands for the state of Baden-Württemberg's project for the conservation and development of nature and the environment. The aim of the funding is a nature conservation-oriented regional development that ensures a sustainable and nature conservation-compatible use of the cultural landscape along various utilisation and value-added chains.

The evaluation of the PLENUM model region Schwäbische Alb started in August 2012 on behalf of the Landesanstalt für Umwelt, Messungen und Naturschutz Baden-Württemberg (LUBW). Like other regional development programmes, PLENUM thrives on the commitment of the local population, land users and consumers to the sustainable development of their environment and the implementation of nature conservation objectives through utilisation strategies.

Since the second and final funding phase was completed at the end of March 2013, the LUBW commissioned the IfLS in cooperation with the Institute for Botany and Landscape Studies Breunig, Karlsruhe, to record and document the results of the PLENUM funding in a final evaluation. Both nature conservation effects and socio-economic effects were collected.

The results will serve the state of Baden-Württemberg as documentation of the funding effects and as a basis for shaping the funding landscape in the coming EU funding period from 2014 to 2020.
