The population of Luxembourg is likely to continue to rise. Estimates are that it could reach 560 000 to 605 000 inhabitants by 2024, bringing an overall need for more infrastructure facilities and housing, i.e. more threats to existing natural and semi-natural areas. That is why the issue of land use and consumption is taken on board in various action plans.
