EIPs and the delivery of ecosystem services publication

RBAPS paper RIA 2020

Derek McLoughlin (PMP) together with Amanda Browne (Caomhnú Árann ) and Caroline A. Sullivan (Hen Harrier Project) have published an excellent paper entitled: The delivery of ecosystem services through results-based agri-environment payment schemes (RBPS): three Irish case studies. The paper was published in Biology and Environment: Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy. 

The paper gives an insight into the opertation of the three EIPs and shows how they provide a model by which this wide range of ecosystem services can be delivered through a results-based agri-environment (AE) payments approach, where farmers are rewarded for the quality of habitat that they maintain on their farms in addition to the food products that they produce.
