Critical-point analysis of the Ordinance on Ecological Quality

Using a wide range of methods, both parts of the Ordinance on Ecological Quality, `Quality` and `Networking`, were examined with respect to their critical points regarding transaction costs, institutional configuration in the cantons, and land-use changes associated with the programmes. The results suggest graded contributions for the `Quality` sphere and a replacement of the fixed contributions per hectare by individually submitted or tendered projects.
