This document represents the deliverable D5.1 within Workpackage WP5 “Formulating and evaluating governance mechanisms for delivery of public goods” of the EU Horizon 2020 project PROVIDE (PROVIding smart DElivery of public goods by EU agriculture and forestry). WP5 targets designing and evaluating improved and applicable governance mechanisms for the smart delivery of Public Goods (PG) and the avoidance of Public Bads (PB). The objectives of WP5 are: (1) to identify private and public governance mechanisms for the smart delivery of Public goods (PG)/avoidance of Public bads (PB), (2) to design evaluation approaches to integrated and innovative governance strategies, (3) to comparatively evaluate the potential success or trade-offs of the most promising governance strategies at case study level, (4) to analyse the practicability and transferability of these governance strategies at programming and EU level, and (5) to formulate guidelines for practical implementation of governance instruments for PG delivery. Deliverable D5.1 represents the “Report on governance mechanisms selection, methodology adaptation and guidelines for evaluation”. On the one hand, deliverable D5.1 reports on the achievements in respect to objective (1) and (2) of WP5, by synthesising the findings of Task 5.1 “Participatory selection of good governance mechanisms” and by giving an overview on the adaptation of approaches and methodologies to evaluate governance strategies at case study level. On the other hand, D5.1 serves as the basis to ensure the achievement of objectives (3) and (4) of WP5: It provides the results of task 5.2 “Developing guidelines for the evaluation of governance strategies for PG delivery”. These guidelines prepare the successful implementation of task 5.3, which is the “Practical, case study based evaluation of governance strategies” as well as containing first inputs to task 5.4, which is the “Analysis of the practicability and transferability of the instruments at programming and EU level”. The report is structured as follows: Chapter 2 includes an introduction to the topic of environmental governance and presents potential governance mechanisms for the provision of public goods/avoidance of public bads 7 from agriculture and forestry. Chapter 3 reports on the process of governance mechanism selection in PROVIDE and presents the government mechanisms selected in the individual PROVIDE case study regions (CSR), depending on the public good hotspot story. Chapter 4 reports on the adaptation of the methodology for the evaluation of governance strategies. Chapter 5 presents the guidelines for evaluation.
