Annual plan 2023

Over the past year, UNESCO's area vision The Maasheggen has been under review. What is going well? What needs to be changed or improved? What do we continue and what are new challenges that (will) come our way?

This interim evaluation was important to set the course for the coming years. After all, the Maasheggengebied is also increasingly facing new challenges and tasks that require a response or solution in our area. Consider the transformation of the agricultural sector, the nitrogen problem, the decline in biodiversity, energy transition, climate change, the impoverishment of community facilities in the villages and increasing recreational pressure.

Moreover, there is a need for more balance between "man" and "biosphere. In. recent years, most attention and effort has been devoted to nature development, restoration and conservation and the implementation of (water) projects. In the coming years, more efforts will also be made to increase the involvement of residents and visitors in the Maasheggengebied.

You can read about how we will do this in concrete terms in 2023 in the annual plan, which was adopted by the steering committee in January. It gives a good overview of all the projects that will be followed up or set in motion in 2023.
