Sample text

Retiring land provides the most benefits possible, although often at the highest cost. On the other hand, conservation on land in production usually provides relatively fewer benefits at lower price tags. Finally, how do agri-environmental policies interact among themselves and with other government policies? Whether agri-environmental programmes should substitute or complement traditional commodity programmes has been a subject of debate in recent years. Similarly, whether taking land out of production should dominate spending on other conservation programmes is also an unsettled issue.

To protect farmland, countries use different land use policies. Geerte Cotteleer and her co-authors look specifically at two jurisdictions: The Netherlands and a particularly rich farming area in British Columbia, Canada. For these areas the authors investigate how the institutions and laws present in these jurisdictions contribute to agricultural land preservation. Chapter 6 provides an analysis of farmland values in a GIS-based hedonic pricing framework to answer this question. This combination enables an analysis of the direct impacts of laws and regulations within the hedonic pricing framework.
