Policy Issues in Payment for Environmental Services




Ecosystem services broadly mean the benefits that people derive from ecosystems. The services are categorised as provisioning, supporting, regulating, or cultural. For a long time, these services have been considered as nature’s service and have systematically been undervalued. Because they are not traded in conventional markets, they are not captured by existing price signals that have led to over exploitation of the environmental goods with the negative effects on the supply of environmental services. The papers in this book cut across different aspects of Environmental Services (Watershed management, Carbon sequestration, and biodiversity management), policy and institutional issues related to PES.
