About this book

Addresses one of the key features of contemporary government policy: how to integrate the economic role of agriculture with the societal role of the rural environment. The first part of the book contains a set of six theoretical contributions to the economics of the agri-environment, including consideration of the associated policy implications. Building on this theoretical base, the second part contains four international case studies of agri-environmental policy.
