“Eventually, nations must give in.”

Vice-Chancellor Werner Koegler strongly criticized the states' decision to abandon the government's 2.5 hectare target for land strategy.

Twelve hectares of nature disappear every day in Austria. When it comes to the question of how much land to use in Austria in the future, the government and the states cannot find a common denominator. Vice chancellor Werner Koegler (Greens) came to ZiB2 on Friday evening.

Gogler also criticized the states' decision to withdraw from the government's 2.5 hectare target in the land strategy: “It's called land for fields, not for redundant parking lots,” he said. ORF– “Time to Repent” broadcast.

“Sorry State Governors”

On Thursday, the federal states decided to go it alone, abandoning the binding target of a maximum net consumption of 2.5 hectares per day from 2030 and pursuing their own strategy. The community association also opposed this goal.

Kogler was not particularly impressed by the agreement between the states: “Everyone can decide anything.” The vice-chancellor doesn't think it's a bad thing that states have come up with plans, but he clearly expects action: “Just because you find the platform doesn't mean it's an achievement, sorry state governors.”

However, Koegler is confident that public and media pressure will eventually be enough: “Eventually, the states will have to give in.” Because in people's interests, things cannot continue to be compartmentalized or covered in concrete.
