A new book is available online entitled Farming for Nature – the role of results-based payments. This book has been edited by Eileen O’Rourke and John A. Finn. Contributors of this book include Brendan Dunford and Sharon Parr who wrote a chapter on Farming for Conservation in the Burren, which can be freely accessed  here

The principal aim of this book is to document, present the findings of and lessons learnt from a collection of innovative case-studies of the best Irish locally led result-based agri-environment schemes to date. The entire book has been published digitally, for now, and can be downloaded either through the Teagasc publications section or NPWS publications.   It is hoped that the hardcopy version of the book will be launched later in the year.
