Book Description
Ecosystems provide services that sustain, strengthen, and enrich various constituents of human well-being. The unique features of most of these services is that they are unacounted and unpriced, and therefore remain outside the domain of the market. For this reason, the use of innovative instruments for the management and measurement of transactions between provider and beneficiaries of environmental services - known as payment for ecosystem services (PES) has become a promising reponse option. In this volume, leading experts from the field of ecological economics address a wide range of issues dealing with teh valuation of ecosystem services - a key to PES - and major challenges to PES schemes. They also explore payment options for rural development worldwide, implications for the long-run sustainability of the arrangement, and synthesis of major knowledge gaps in the field.
