Abstract

This paper offers a systematic overview of policies that may cause synergies and trade-offs between agricultural policy objectives on productivity, climate change adaptation and mitigation for the Netherlands. Implementation of the climate policy is to a large extent based on voluntary agreements with the private sector, but supported by regulations, subsidies, tax incentives, emissions trade, extension services and demonstration projects. Synergies between objectives are exploited through policy different programmes including public private partnerships (PPP) at different institutional levels.
