This is the second in a series of papers concerned with harnessing private incentives to enhance the sustainability of agricultural production. Paper 1 outlines key principles and insights from existing research on the general requirements to achieve changes in agriculture to enhance sustainability. This paper builds on those insights by examining the opportunities to reduce water pollution arising from agriculture, including opportunities for private agribusiness firms to contribute by virtue of their ability to influence the actions of farmers.
