Mapping lessons and developing the operational framework - PEGASUS Deliverable 5.2
This report draws key lessons from the mapping work undertaken in PEGASUS and describes in Deliverable 2.3. It also provides detailed information about the mapping Add-On to the PEGASUS Toolkit for Practitioners. The Add-On to the Toolkit (available here) provides a European benchmark to leaders or facilitators of local initiatives to understand the main factors which may impact the provision of environmental and social benefits in agriculture and forestry in their region as well as the macro-regional or EU context in which they are located. This report is one of a set of final papers arising from the project, comprising D5.2, D5.3 and D5.4.

Report on patterns and trends of Public Goods/Ecosystem Services in relation to land management systems  - PEGASUS Deliverable 2.3
This report describes, in a spatially explicit way, patterns of the occurrence of Public Goods (PG) / Ecosystem Services (ESS) in relation to the diversity of EU agricultural and forestry systems across Europe. Variations in the intensity of management in relation to selected indicators are also explored. This deliverable provides a new perspective on the role that agriculture and forestry play in PG/ESS delivery at EU level.

Case study reports - Steps 1 and 2 - PEGASUS Deliverable 4.1
This report compiles the reports of 34 case studies in ten different EU countries. In "Steps 1 and 2" of the case study work, the PEGASUS teams carried out analyses of issues and successful initiatives associated with the delivery of environmental and social benefits by agriculture and forestry across a wide range of broad and shallow case studies.

Database and classification system of different types of Public Goods and Ecosystem Services in relation to farming/forestry systems - PEGASUS Deliverable 2.2
This deliverable represents a further step towards the integrated analysis of agriculture and forestry management systems and the delivery of public goods and ecosystem services. It includes a schematic review of available information (indicators, proxies) available to map those goods and services that characterise the provision of 'Environmentally and Socially Beneficial Outcomes' identified in PEGASUS.

D3.3


Socio-political, economic and institutional drivers. A cross-country comparative analysis. Synthesis Report - PEGASUS Deliverable 3.3
This synthesis report investigates a range of drivers and factors that have an influence on the provision and delivery of "environmentally and socially beneficial outcomes" (ESBOs) and identifies the types of policy instruments that appear to be setting the necessary conditions to stimulate action by farmers and foresters in relation to ESBO provision, in different agricultural and forestry contexts.
D3.1
Ten country reports on socio-political, economic and institutional drivers - PEGASUS Deliverable 3.1
This document presents the results of analyses carried out in the ten PEGASUS case study countries of market, socio-political and institutional drivers for Public Goods (PG) and Ecosystem Services (ES) provision by EU agriculture and forestry.
D2.1
Review of approaches and datasets to categorise and map Public Goods and Ecosystem Services at EU level - PEGASUS Deliverable 2.1
This report presents a review of relevant datasets and approaches available at EU level to categorise and map ecosystem services and public goods. It is the first step in the process to analyse the patterns and trends of their occurrence in relation to the diversity of EU farming and forestry systems across Europe.
D1.2 - PEGASUS the conceptual framework
The conceptual framework - PEGASUS Deliverable 1.2
This reports describes the conceptual framework of PEGASUS, introducing notably the social-ecological system framework and the list and definition of the "environmentally and socially beneficial outcomes" of relevance to the project.

Initial report on review of theories and concepts - PEGASUS Deliverable 1.1
This paper provides an approach to serve as a conceptual framework for the PEGASUS project. It reviews the theoretical context, examining the different understandings of public goods and ecosystem services from agriculture and forestry in the scientific and policy literature; bringing them into the more holistic frame of social-ecological systems and using insights from these different understandings to identify key issues, analytical concepts and processes to guide PEGASUS.

    Reports of the PEGASUS national workshops in 10 countries
    The links below gives you access to the reports of the 10 PEGASUS national workshops organised between May and June 2017, to collect the views of national stakeholders and test the findings emerging from the work  from the case studies (WP4) but also the mapping (WP2) and policy analysis (WP3) works, in national contexts. The national workshops aimed to ensure that the key messages and recommendations developed at a later stage were in line with stakeholders’ needs and areas of interest whilst getting a sense of the reactions they generate from different people across the EU and across activities or interest groups (e.g. agriculture, forestry or supply chain stakeholders, land owners, researchers, policy decision makers, environmental NGOs, etc.).
