Methodological information:
  • Conceptual and Methodological Framework for Evaluating the Contribution of Collective Action to Biodiversity Conservation
  • Other
There is a whole range of private organisations in Liechtenstein, such as the Liechtenstein Society for Environmental Protection, the botanical-zoological society, CIPRA, etc., as well as private foundations which are involved in nature and environmental protection. Unfortunately, it is not possible to quantify exactly how much money they spend each year on nature and landscape conservation.
5. Reporting funding needs, gaps, and priorities

Please indicate your annual estimated funding need (for instance, based on your revised NBSAP) and calculate the estimated funding gap by subtracting estimated available resources. Indicate actions for priority funding.

Please start with the year which is most appropriate for your own planning purposes.

  • Some measures taken
In recent years, the Liechtenstein Society for Environmental Protection has launched various projects to promote biodiversity. For example, the "natural, colorful, and species-rich" project, which aims to enhance settlement green spaces, or the "Nature and Economy" project, which aims to increase the diversity of species within industrial and commercial areas.However, there are also private foundations such as LIFE Climate Foundation, which is committed to climate protection, which also contributes to the preservation of biodiversity.
