Bert Vanholen and Yannick Peers

(Submission #354)


The Agency for Nature and Forestry has started a redesign of her nature management plan process with the aim to come to a fully transparent nature and forest management in Flanders. It was decided to integrate the blockchain technology within a proof of concept project. The project identified four distinct elements that needed testing: active geographical elements, automated management, traceable history and single source of truth in a management ecosystem. Furthermore these needed incorpration into a streamlined user interface enhancing the user experience for both citizens and nature managers.

The presentation will highlight the results of the advanced proof of concept an pilot project. Especially the aspects giving more control to owners, managers and workers of nature land:
