Abstract The Dutch Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management is investigating different options to modify or expand the funding of water management with more price incentives focusing on more effective, efficient and fairer water management. One of the areas to which additional attention is being paid is the role of innovative economic instruments in agriculture for water management. At the instructions of the Waterdienst (Water department) of the Dutch Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management, ARCADIS and LEI have carried out an exploratory study of voluntary initiatives over and above of what is required by law in the agricultural sector in the Netherlands where a type of payment for water-related ecosystem services is involved. These ecosystem services may be related to water quality (nutrients, pesticides and ecology), water quantity (storage) or landscape values. The nature and scope of such initiatives in the Netherlands have been mapped out within this explorative study.
