Providing Agri-environmental Public Goods through Collective Action

This study analyses the promotion of collective action for agri-environmental public goods and addresses externalities by reviewing the experience of various OECD member countries. Twenty-five cases from
13 countries (Australia, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom) are examined. The study shows that collective action should be given serious consideration as a means of addressing many agricultural and natural resource issues, and in some cases collective action should be actively promoted.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter discusses two cases of Landcare in Australia: Mulgrave Landcare and Catchment Group Inc. and Holbrook Landcare Network. The first case study is a farmerbased environment group that has been actively addressing natural resource management issues in the catchments near the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. The second case study addresses the main natural resource management issues (habitat loss, dryland salinity and soil erosion). Following a brief description of the case studies, the agri-environmental public goods provided by collective action, the roles of participants and the factors affecting outcomes in collective action are examined.
