Evaluation of Agri-environmental Policies

Selected Methodological Issues and Case Studies

image of Evaluation of Agri-environmental Policies
Governments are increasingly aware of the importance of monitoring and evaluating their policies − including agri-environmental policies − and are devoting efforts to strengthening their monitoring and evaluation systems and capacities. They aim to improve their performance by establishing evidence-based policy-making, evidence-based management and evidence-based accountability, which will help to improve the design and implementation of policies. Have agri-environmental and agricultural policies, including cross-compliance  and environmental regulations, succeeded in meeting environmental objectives for agriculture in OECD countries (and selected non-OECD countries)? What is the role for governments to encourage farmers to deliver environmental public goods? The report includes a selection papers presented at the OECD Workshop on Evaluation of Agri-environmental Policies, held 20-22 June 2011 in Braunschweig, Germany.

Evaluating policies for delivering agri-environmental public goods

This chapter provides a conceptual framework for discussing methodological and practical issues arising in the context of evaluating policies for delivering agri-environmental public goods. It distinguishes three stylised types of evaluation – the “administrative”, “scientific” and “economic” approaches – each of which provides a different kind of information in a different time-frame. The scope for each approach to perform its role more efficiently and usefully is explored, as well as the underlying difficulties and constraints.
