This article highlights and compares the different approaches towards enhancement of both private- and policy-induced valorisation of public benefits of agriculture and forestry. We include information from 11 case studies conducted across the EU, as part of the PEGASUS project,1 which reveal how private sector involvement can improve the provision of public benefits (See Table 1 for the list of case studies with private-sector involvement). The cases identify how and when (combined) public and private policy mechanisms and tools for policy, business and practice can be applied. The range of motivations for private sector involvement and actions is examined. We explore key questions on how best to improve the social and ecological resilience of farming and forestry systems in the EU by enhancing the sustained provision of public benefits via valorisation of such goods and services
