Techniques such as conservation easements are best framed as participatory, rather than incentive-based, because the public or private demander secures positive externalities by triggering demand in a market for a less-than-fee right in land (say, a negative easement). In other words, the easement market always existed, but it was the newly created demand from government or a private group that created the viability of this “new” market for conservation. A final set of controls is a hybrid of two of the preceding; for instance, a transferable development right program is part regulatory (the cap) and part incentive-based (the trading).
