Assessment of Agri-environmental Public Goods Provision Using Fuzzy Synthetic Evaluation

Research output: Book/ReportBookScientificpeer-review

Abstract

the paper assesses the provision level of agri-environmental public goods at the different regions in Finland by using fuzzy synthetic evaluation method. The evaluation results indicate that the Uusimaa region remains relative high provision level due to the low nitrogen and phosphate balance, low farm animal cattle and pig density, and relative high fallow area, on the other hand, the regions of Pohjanmaa and Etela-Pohjamaa lie in the relative low provision level. Therefore, we
suggest that uneven area-based agri-environmental payment adopted would incentivize more agrienvironmental outcomes at the different regions
