New Perspectives on Agri-Environmental Policies : A Multidisciplinary and Transatlantic Approach Hardback
Edited by Stephan J. Goetz, Floor Brouwer
Part of the Routledge Explorations in Environmental Economics series
Significant advances have occurred in recent years in Europe and in North America in addressing agri-environmental policies.
Land use issues tend to be more pressing in Europe than in the US as a whole because of different spatial exigencies. Because these advances have taken place within individual academic disciplines, there has been something of a loss of synergy and often efforts are duplicated.
While important institutional and legal differences still exist between the two continents, the sharing of recent scientific advances will benefit scientists on both sides of the Atlantic and this is the main purpose of this book.
The primary features of the book are threefold. First, the authors aim to identify options for policy to overcome the challenges ahead related to future agri-environmental policies.
Second, they synthesize existing knowledge and identify gaps in current knowledge along with future research needs.
Finally, they explicitly compare agri-environmental interactions and approaches to their resolution in Europe and in the US. This is the only major book of its kind that focuses specifically on the intersection between agricultural and environmental policies and issues.
Furthermore, the multi-disciplinary approach taken in the volume, as well as the inclusion of authors from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, makes the book unique.
This book will be of most value to university faculty and students interested in agriculture and the environment on both sides of the Atlantic, the text should also be of interest to informed laypersons as well as policymakers.
