Governance in BonaRes framework
Within the Bonares DPSIR framework, governance plays two roles – on the one hand, current governance structures are one of the drivers of agricultural soil management. They influence how soil is managed and what pressures on it arise. As such, their consideration is highly relevant for the development of scenarios. On the other hand, knowledge of state and impact that result from these pressures informs societal response, which takes the form of modifications and amendments to the existing governance structures. These can address either of the four governance dimensions discussed in Overview and aim to improve target adequacy, object adequacy, instrument adequacy or behavioural adequacy, or the consistency and interplay between the dimensions.
