In this paper we present a two stage game of political lobbying for policies designed to enhanceenvironmental quality. Unlike previous work which has tended to assume perfect monitoring ofenvironmental quality in lobbying games we allow for imperfect monitoring of environmental quality.We characterize perfect public (politico-economic) equilibria in the game for the case of both perfectand imperfect monitoring of environmental quality and compare these with imperfect privatemonitoring of environmental quality. Results are discussed with respect to farmer behaviour in thecontext of non-point source pollution and implications for the political consequences of farmextension programmes highlighted.
