In search of factors determining the participation of farmers in agri-environmental schemes – Does only money matter in Poland?

Peer-reviewed publication
Janvier, 2021
États-Unis d'Amérique

The growing awareness of the negative impact of agriculture on the natural environment creates social expectation towards the reduction of this impact through the pro-environmental activities of farmers. Agri-environmental programmes are one of the key instruments of EU agricultural policy aimed at encouraging farmers to do so. Due to their voluntary nature and involvement of farmers in these activities, there has been a scientific discussion for a long time on the factors determining the participation of farmers in these programmes.

Nature conservation versus agriculture in the light of socio-economic changes over the last half-century–Case study from a Hungarian national park

Peer-reviewed publication
Janvier, 2021

National parks and other forms of protection ensure the natural values in the European Union. However, a significant part of protected areas is under agricultural cultivation, and the two sectors have been kind of opponents to each other for a long time. In the last 50 years, because of various socio-economic changes, the European and Hungarian agricultural policies had opposing concepts and goals, even related to protected areas.

Expanding commodity frontiers and the emergence of customary land markets: A case study of tree-crop farming in Venda, South Africa

Peer-reviewed publication
Janvier, 2021
Afrique australe
Afrique du Sud

Contemporary discourses on customary land tenure in Africa, and South Africa in particular, have emphasized the socially embedded and flexible nature of customary land rights, recognising these as inherently more ‘pro-poor’ than individual titling. Based on in-depth interviews and participant observations in Venda, a former homeland in South Africa, this paper explores how in the context of expanding commodity frontiers, customary land markets have emerged, leading to de facto privatisation of customary land.

Identifying economic and societal drivers of engagement in agri-environmental schemes for English dairy producers

Peer-reviewed publication
Janvier, 2021
États-Unis d'Amérique

Livestock production is under increasing scrutiny regarding its impacts on the environment and its wider role in climate change. Consequently, there are a growing number of private agri-environmental schemes (AES) now operating alongside public AES that offer farmers economic rewards to maintain and enhance the environment. This study focused exclusively on a small number of commercial dairy producers located in the North West of England who were all suppliers of a global food producer and members of the producer’s own private AES.

Outsourcing governance in Peru’s integrated water resources management

Peer-reviewed publication
Janvier, 2021
Amérique centrale
Amérique du Sud

Participatory water governance has become highly influential around the world as a means for managing water resources. Scholars and practitioners advocate for the inclusion of previously marginalized communities in water resources management through the devolution of power, responsibility, and participation. Where community institutions are weak or missing, experts recommend strengthening or re-building them to enable inclusive decision-making over water resources.
