Article
Full-text available
In the European Union (EU), the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is considered to be the critical public policy in terms of both impacts and funds dedicated to nature conservation, yet the goal of halting biodiversity loss in the EU remains elusive. The present paper examines the degree of biodiversity policy integration into the CAP and the qualit...
Article
Full-text available
The proposed Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) for the period 2021-2027 will be more flexible and, presumably, more effective. To provide for sufficient ambition and prevent a race to the bottom, national strategic plans will be introduced with quantitative targets covering both policy pillars. This article argues that since formal requirements and...

Grey Partridge is a scarce breeder of lowland agricultural landscapes, especially in the NE part of Slovenia. It has disappeared from most of the western and central part of the country. It is present on fields, meadows and field margins, foraging in sparse weed vegetation. Captive-bred individuals may still be hunted and there is extensive annual...
Chapter
Common Quail is found mainly in the lowlands but some isolated populations also inhabit subalpine grasslands in the western part of Slovenia. Its population shows a moderate to steep decline, probably as a result of land use changes (increase in arable fields and intensive meadows), further aggravated by illegal hunting on migration and the introdu...
Chapter
Common Moorhen is a widespread breeder with the majority of its population located in the Ljubljana basin and in NE Slovenia. It occurs at standing waters with abundant macrophyte vegetation, occasionally also on slow-flowing parts of rivers. It also inhabits water bodies in urban areas, tolerating occasional human disturbance. Breeding densities r...
Chapter
Common Coot is patchily distributed breeder with the majority of its population located in NE Slovenia, the Ljubljana basin, Lake Cerknica and Škocjanski zatok Nature Reserve. Compared to the previous atlas of breeding birds in Slovenia (1995) its range has shrunk. It occurs on a wide range of relatively shallow standing waters, requiring a belt of...
Chapter
Common Kestrel is a numerous and widespread species in agricultural landscapes, urban and montane areas, having the highest densities in NE and central Slovenia. It inhabits a wide altitudinal range from the lowlands to the high mountain ranges but the majority of its population occurs at up to 400 m a.s.l. Its densities range from 0.8 p./km2 in ur...
Chapter
Common Starling is a widespread and very numerous breeder across Slovenia, only avoiding high mountain ranges and areas of continuous forest. The majority of its population occurs in the lowlands and in hills up to 400 m a.s.l. It inhabits agricultural landscapes as well as parks, gardens and avenues in urban areas. The average density in agricultu...

Question
Hello,
I have a problem with writing a suitable code for the "cmset" command in STATA 16.
We have a dataset from the discrete choice experiment (DCE) with 18 choice sets/cards. On each choice card, there were 2 alternatives (with 5 attributes) and an opt-out ("status quo") option (variable alt). Each respondent (variable id) was allocated to one of the blocs (variable bloc) with 6 choice cards (variable card).
Could you please help with any ideas on how to correctly write this command?
Thank you in advance,
Tanja

Project
Our Mission: To bring together researchers, experts and policy makers interested in the use of economic experimental approaches to evaluate and improve the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The Research network on Economic Experiments for the CAP (REECAP) is a EU-wide informal consortium created in 2017. REECAP is open to those who wish to promote behavioural analysis and economic experimental designs for the ex-ante and ex-post evaluation of European agricultural policies. REECAP has three primary inter-related objectives: 1) Improving external and internal validity of economic and behavioral experimental research to make it an essential component of CAP evaluation toolbox 2) Create bridges across evaluation communities and knowledge exchanges with policy makers in order to upgrade the impact of our research 3) Provide relevant and timely information to REECAP network members and disseminate REECAP results to relevant stakeholders
