1. Compensation models for grazing leases

This ALI-led research reviews current policy for public lands grazing leases in Alberta, and compares it with approaches used in the Province of Saskatchewan and Municipal District of Taber. It examines the implications of alternative approaches to compensation funds transferred from oil and gas operators to lease holders.
