How environmental policy instruments affect the development of environmentally-conserving agricultural technology. Theory and practice

Technical Bulletin of the Faculty of Agriculture, Kagawa University 50(1): 17-32

How environmental policy instruments affect the development of environmentally-conserving agricultural technology. Theory and practice

The effects of environmental policy instruments are considered. In Japan, the use value of agriculture and rural regions (such as biodiversity, landscape, recreation, resource conservation, food safety and health) are increasingly being evaluated in a multidimensional framework. Evaluation in terms of public benefits is also being studied. Protecting domestic agriculture by connecting it to regional resource conservation is employed in EU agricultural policy.
