LM0105: Scoping the strengths and weaknesses of different auction and PES mechanisms for the next round of agr-environment schemes (RP02992)

The aim of this study was to review the current literature to explore potential public-private combined funding mechanisms, along with any barriers to and opportunities for incorporating private funding alongside Rural Development Plan funding, and suggest ways of overcoming any barriers identified. In addition, the policy, practical and legal implications of different reverse auction designs were assessed within the context of the new Rural Development Plan for England, with a specific focus on application within agri-environment schemes.
