Beyond agri-environmental policy: towards an alternative model of rural environmental governance

Beyond agri-environmental policy: towards an alternative model of rural environmental governance Following the Second World War there were clear priorities for the domestic production of food.

Abstract

Following the Second World War there were clear priorities for the domestic production of food. Agriculture was viewed as playing a central role in the protection of the rural environment and the support of the rural economy. These assumptions have now been largely rejected and a new framework for the conservation of the countryside is needed. The development of agri-environmental policy signals a start, but there are a number of limitations to this approach. A wider framework is required that includes a variety of alternative linkage mechanisms between the demand for countryside goods and the control of land. These include a range of alternative institutional arrangements among individuals and organisations, with significant roles for government, market and non-profit organisations. No single model can deliver the variety of environmental characteristics that is sought. The development of this new framework presents a challenge for the governance of the countryside.
