Nature Conservation

Nature and landscape draw from the full in the Waldeck-Frankenberg district. The diverse landscape makes the region a rich cultural area. The preservation of this diversity is important for humans and animals.

Water and soil protection

Water and soils in Waldeck-Frankenberg must be kept in a good ecological condition. This means that although water bodies are anthropogenically influenced, they still have a rich, balanced ecosystem.

As part of its climate protection management, the Waldeck-Frankenberg district takes care of sustainable and climate-relevant issues - and works closely with the Waldeck-Frankenberg Climate Team.
