Finnish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry Seeks Feedback on Reforms to Reindeer Husbandry Law

The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in Finland has released a Webropol survey today to gather opinions on the reforms made to the Reindeer Husbandry Law. The survey is specifically designed for residents, farmers, and reindeer herders in the reindeer husbandry area.

The Reindeer Husbandry Law underwent modifications in 2020, with the central focus being the establishment of a new Reindeer Damage Committee. Through this survey, the Ministry aims to assess the success of the reform in achieving its key objectives. This survey is part of the legislative evaluation carried out as a follow-up to the reform, with the results expected to be presented to the parliament by the end of this year.

Responding to the survey takes approximately 10 minutes and includes a brief introduction outlining the key changes brought about by the reform, followed by the actual questions. Participants familiar with the reform can skip the introductory section. This initiative reflects the ministry’s commitment to engaging stakeholders and ensuring the effectiveness of the legislative changes in reindeer husbandry.
