Development of a Landscape Intervention Decision Support System (LIDSS) to Maximise Net Social Benefit

Payments to farmers are shifting from production-based subsidies towards grants for conservation work, such as habitat enhancements. The benefits and costs of this work vary greatly from farm to farm, and understanding the benefits is further complicated by the fact that they depend partly on the conservation work conducted on surrounding farms. This project aims to unravel these complications in order to calculate the net benefits of a project at the landscape level, and so derive the most efficient way to employ resources for conservation.
