Management of the cultural environmental issues will change drastically due to regional reform in the following years. The current managing bodies are ELY centres, regional councils, municipalities and museums. In 2019 the ELY centres and regional councils will quit their actions. Ministry of the Environment has commissioned MDI to study the impacts of regional reform for the cultural environment issues, strengthen the implementation and regional development integration of the Cultural Environment Strategy.
The study is divided into three phases: The first phase maps the preparation of the cultural environmental issues in different regions, the second spreads best practices in managing the cultural environmental issues and the third phase reports the results. The work is due in Spring 2018.
