Two types of CoPs as policy instrument can be distinguished: CoPs in policy development and COPs in policy implementation.

For example, farmers join in CoPs to exchange knowledge and ideas in order to establish a more sustainable type of agriculture. These types of CoPs are financially facilitated by the Dutch government.

The mayor characteristics, in fact, do comply with the basic principles of Forest Landscape Restoration: • Restoration efforts move beyond tree planting alone. The primary goal is restoration of forest functions and biodiversity. • It is impossible to maximize all land-use options at the site-level. 1). Land-use trade-offs at a landscape-level are being sought for every square meter in the Netherlands. • An inclusive approach is necessary: a mix of technical packages is being applied. • The need to induce improvement in landscape integrity through political and institutional change is being recognized.

This expected drop in public funding offers a more pragmatic argument to shift the attention towards the private sector for financing landscape restoration efforts in the Netherlands. On the other hand, a larger proportion of the EU financial support for rural areas will probably be so called targeted payments (payments for environmental services; Fig. 7). These payments may also prove to be of increasingly importance to finance ecological restoration efforts. J. Hendriks et al. This means that valuation of landscape restoration in the Netherlands needs to become more prominent within the public debate, relative to the ecological arguments.
