Abstract Over the period 2010-2013 the Dutch government made
a major shift in nature policy, which was triggered by
the financial crisis and a new framing of nature conservation
and development in society. The ambition of the
Dutch Nature Network is now downsized in area, the
realisation is decentralised to provinces and the budgets
for investments in nature development and conservation
are decreased. In this article we assess the robustness
of the Dutch nature policy with four crash tests. In
these tests four pillars are investigated. It appears that
existing nature qualities in terms of Natura 2000 areas
and f lora and fauna species are well protected by spatial-
and regulatory law. Additional physical planning
of provinces and municipalities protects existing nature
against developments of farmers and firms. In order to
secure nature development sufficient nature management
budget must be available. Last important pillar is
ownership. Farmers and land owners can play an important
role in development of nature areas, but there is no
guarantee that they will actually do so. The ownership
of nature reserves in the hand of specialized nature conservation
organisations remains an important pillar in
Dutch policy to ensure the continuity of nature development.
