Goals

Previous projects show some results of the demand and supply of individual ecosystem services, but a holistic approach to agriculture on ecosystem services is missing. The aim of the proposed research is to bring an insight regarding the demand and supply of ES from agriculture and generate an approach for design of ecosystem oriented agricultural policy.

Outputs

Due to the public good feature of ecosystem services and strong connection to private land ownership, this study approaches the ES on the one hand from the demand side analyzing citizen willingness to pay for ecosystem services, on the other hand, through the land owners’ willingness to participate in their provision. Furthermore, the study helps to internalize the idea of ecosystem services to agricultural policy.
