Accessibility statement

General information

As a public sector body of the German State of Lower Saxony, the Niedersächsischer Landesbetrieb für Wasserwirtschaft, Küsten- und Naturschutz (NLWKN) is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with § 9 of the Lower Saxony Law on the Equality of Persons with Disabilites (Niedersächsisches Behindertengleichstellungsgesetz, NBGG).

This accessibility statement applies to the content published on the website

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content

Despite our best efforts to ensure the accessibility of the LIFE IP GrassBirdHabitats website, we are aware of some limitations, which we are working to fix. Below is a description of known limitations and potential solutions. Please contact us if you encounter an issue not listed below.

The following content is non-accessible:

  • The PDF documents on this website are mostly non-accessible. Newly published PDF documents are made available in an accessible version. We are currently working on replacing existing PDF documents by accessible versions. If you require a specific PDF file from us that is not yet accessible, please contact us.
  • The online maps that display the project areas of Lower Saxony, Fryslân and West Africa do not have alternative text. According to Article 1 of Directive (EU) 2016/2102, online maps do not need to be accessible if they are not intended for navigational use. A document with simplified and static versions of the three online maps is available for download on each of the pages. The maps in this document have alternative text.
