Welcome to the BonaRes Governance Platform

Welcome to the Governance Platform! This platform synthesizes essential information about governance of agricultural soil management, whereby governance is understood as a system of institutions that aim to coordinate individual and collective action towards a resource (e.g. agricultural soils). Institutions encompass policy instruments (regulations, incentives etc.), laws, social norms and conventions.
