Detail

An expert consortium with hands-on experience of developing Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) schemes was commissioned to develop a Best Practice Guide in collaboration with potential users. This Guide collates a number of instructive domestic and international case studies (covered in detail in the annex) demonstrating the various challenges and solutions associated with a PES approach. This authoritative, practical and business-focused Guide will help users to:

  • understand the principles of PES
  • identify and test potential opportunities and suitable partners for PES
  • find solutions to technical, legal and institutional issues.
