This Working Paper (WP) draws together social science evidence on factors found to influence the decision of farmers to participate in agri-environment schemes (AES) and undertake pro-environmental management activities. It provides recommendations to policy makers based on this evidence. The WP summarises key findings of 34 peer-reviewed articles published in academic journals between 1983-2018 that are either detailed empirical studies or literature reviews focused on England, Scotland and Wales.
