Title
Joint submissions, output related payments and environmental co-operatives : can the Dutch experience innovate UK agri-environment policy?
Description
This paper describes three relatively recent innovations in the Dutch agri-environment programme which have helped nature management to be contiguous with natural features allowing the landscape to be managed whole rather than piecemeal - and thus generate higher quality and greated scope in environmental management. As none of the three innovations is prominent in UK agri-environment programmes, the paper asks how well do these innovations work and could they deliver similar benefits to the UK's managed environment. It uses Actor Network Theory (ANT) as an analytical tool to make the assessment and concludes that given appropriate levels of trust and a willingness to change roles, Environmental Co-operatives could be established in the UK that could deliver a wide variety of benefits, including facilitating joint submissions and output related payments - though the latter are subject to several outstanding problems (even in the Netherlands).
