The second newsletter of the PEGASUS project was launched last week! It provides information on the project’s progress since March 2016 and some of the emerging findings to enable a greater provision of public goods and ecosystem services from different farming and forestry systems in the EU.
PEGASUS (Public Ecosystem Goods And Services from agriculture and forestry: Unlocking the Synergies) aims to transform approaches to rural land management by unlocking the synergies between economic, social and environmental benefits provided by agriculture and forestry. This EC-funded Horizon 2020 project is investigating new ways of thinking about how farms and forests are managed.
This second issue of the PEGASUS newsletter explains what policy and market settings have been successful in our case studies, and what have been the governance mechanisms behind that success (or sometimes, failure). By ‘success’, we mean the delivery of more environmental and social benefits from agriculture and forestry in the EU, which is also the core ambition of the PEGASUS project. The second article goes through the key results of those case studies, from a more general perspective. To do this, we used an all-encompassing ‘social-ecological system’ framework to ensure we look both at the environmental but also the social outcomes of agro and forestry systems in the case studies. The case study reports and factsheets are now available online too. The last article explains what we plan to do next: 10 in-depth case studies, workshops and an EIP-Agri profile!
