|dc.description.abstract||The first part of the paper examines Slovenian agricultural and environmental policyrelated to nature protection and sustainable rural development in the period of the country?stransition. This period has been characterised by creation a new independent state,introduction of a multi-party democratic political system, transformation of plannedmarketeconomy to market economy as well as by the coming accession to the EU. Theanalysis of relevant laws reveals that environment and nature protection legislation ismore advanced and more effective in practice than agricultural and forestry legislation,both, however, displaying a top-down approach. In the second part of the paper, empiricalstudies are made into the impact of the different laws on agriculture, forestry andenvironment protection practices as well as into the proposed foundation of TrnovskiGozd Regional Park as a protected area. The empirical studies were based on interviewsmade with 20 members of local and 7 members of state elite. Local and state elite respondentsbelieve that, despite some limitations, the park will offer good opportunitiesfor local development (promotion of the area, new jobs, eco-tourism), and by the sametoken guarantee protection of nature/biodiversity and the environment. The local eliterespondents, furthermore, agree that local authorities and local residents (NGOs) shouldparticipate at all stages of the foundation of the regional park.||en_US|
