About the product

The objectives of this study are to further improve our understanding about the ways in which payments for ecosystem services schemes can be applied to forests, in particular focusing on forest’s hydrological functions for the mutual benefit of both humans and the environment. The study covers advances and challenges facing these schemes and provides practical guidance for policymakers and practitioners. It contains the most comprehensive database of case studies on forest-water related payment for ecosystem services schemes in the UNECE region.
