Advice of think tank Regie op Ruimte:
Government, correct the market and support the farmer
If the government corrects the market and supplements the market with long-term payments for ecosystem services, a perspective arises for future-proof business operations for farmers. This way, the government stands alongside the farmer rather than oppose him in achieving ambitious goals in climate, nitrogen, biodiversity, water, air quality and human and animal health. This, in essence, is what the think tank Regie op Ruimte (Direction of space) a spinoff of the Food Transition Coalition, recommends to the Dutch government and all other organisations involved in the future of agriculture and rural areas in the Netherlands.
