Evaluation of the Vienna Woods Biosphere Reserve

After three years of operation, the management of the Vienna Woods Biosphere Reserve was evaluated. PlanSinn was commissioned to carry out the evaluation.
The aims of the evaluation were to provide a comprehensive overall picture of the performance, strengths and weaknesses of the Vienna Woods Biosphere Reserve (BPWW GmbH), give an appraisal of the PR strategies pursued to date and design a concept for future evaluations. These wide-ranging objectives combined with the short deadline of approx. six weeks necessitated a special mix of methods:

- stakeholder survey
- interview with the Supervisory Board
- telephone interviews with cooperation partners
- staff survey
- project evaluation
