Abstract:The 2002 farm bill substantially increased funding levels for conservation programs, and established the new Conservation Security Program. How can the American public and legislators know the money will be well spent? A new project-the Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP)-will provide the agricultural community, the public, and others involved with environmental policy issues an accounting of the benefits obtained from these conservation program costs. Now the question: How will CEAP be implemented?
