Anna-Rosa Asikainen- How to Better Handle Conflicts Between Protected Species and Humans

  1. 1. How to better handle conflicts between protected species and humans? Bilateral meeting: seminar Helsinki 14.5.2018 Central Union of Agricultural Producers and Forest Owners (MTK) Anna-Rosa Asikainen, lawyer
  2. 2. Social sustainability is equally important
  3. 3. MTK:n ympäristölupaukset
  4. 4. Stakeholder involvement • Genuine discussions between different parties is a precondition for finding acceptable solutions. • Is bureaucracy hindering successful interaction? • The key role of farmers, forest owners and people living in rural areas should be better acknowledged. Are they just passive objects of regulation or active partners?
  5. 5. Preventative measures • The derogations provided under Art 19 of the Habitats Directive and Art 9 of the Birds Directive need to be used actively and effectively. • The provisions related to derogations should be interpreted so that the outcome supports social sustainability and takes account the conservation situation of the species in question.
  6. 6. Providing financial compensation • Nature protection and safeguarding biodiversity is a common interest. Fairness and social sustainability require supporting the ones facing difficulties. • The compensation should be fair and adequate to cover the losses. The compensation process has to be simple and quick.
  7. 7. Social sustainability is a prerequisite for conflict-free co-existence. Thank you for your attention!
