Paying for Biodiversity: Enhancing the Cost-Effectiveness of Payments for Ecosystem Services

Drawing on the literature concerning effective PES and on more than 30 case studies from both developed and developing countries, this book aims to identify good practice in the design and implementation of PES programmes so as to enhance their environmental and cost effectiveness.

It addresses the following questions:
Why are PES useful and how do they work?
How can they be made most effective environmentally and how can their cost-effectiveness be maximised?
What are the different potential sources of finance for PES programmes, and how can they be secured?
What are the lessons learned from existing PES programmes and insights for future programmes, including international PES?
