In addition to its involvement in approval procedures, the Office of the Environmental Ombudsman also works on future developments and strategies in the field of nature and environmental protection. In this context, the office develops blueprints and standards relating to topics of relevance for the Tyrol that support the harmonised evaluation of measures taken and indicate opportunities and risks for the future development of the region.
The Office of the Environmental Ombudsman for the Tyrol works on an interdisciplinary basis and benefits in all fields of activity from the wide-ranging expertise of its staff, which covers such disciplines as biology, botany, law, political science and landscape ecology.
The Tyrolean Environmental Ombudsman can delegate his functions in the relevant proceedings. At district level, the Ombudsman can be represented by the Nature Conservation Officers, of which there are two in every political district of the Tyrol.
