Contracts for the common good
The objective of the EFFECT project is to develop and test new types of agri-environmental contracts.
The attention to farmers’ motivations for participating and the consideration for the environmental effectiveness of the contracts, are paramount in our methodology.
EFFECT will work on 9 contract innovation cases representing different geographical regions, environmental issues and actors involved.
The consortium is composed by top university departments in the field of ecology, economics, law and political sciences, along with other leading organizations of the civil society and the agri-environmental field.
The project coordinator is Professor Mette Termansen, Department of Food and Resource Economics (IFRO) at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH).
