Project summary: 

The Western Langstraat (North Brabant) lies on the border of a Natura 2000 site and neighbours the Nature Network Brabant (NNB). However, nature in Brabant suffers from an excess of nitrogen. This is mainly caused by agricultural activities, industry, and transport. Adjustments to water management and restoration works are necessary to conserve nature and include more land in the NNB.

Project results: 

Approximately 250 ha of agricultural parcels bordering the Natura 2000 site have been added to the Nature Network Brabant.
