The report concerns the Ministry of Environment and Food’s management of biodiversity in the Danish state forests. The ministry owns most of the Danish state forests.
The purpose of the study is to assess whether biodiversity in the state forests is managed in a satisfactory manner by the Ministry of Environment. The report answers the following questions:
- Are state forests designated for conservation and increase of biodiversity managed cost-effectively by the Ministry of Environment and Food?
- Is the Ministry of Environment and Food’s management focused on achievement of the objectives defined for biodiversity in near-to-nature forestry?
Rigsrevisionen took initiative to the study in January 2015.
