Ecology and Society: Are Direct Payments for Environmental Services Spelling Doom for Sustainable Forest Management in the Tropics?

2006, Wunder in Ecology and Society

"Over the past several decades, significant donor funding has been directed to sustainable forest management in the tropics, in the hope of combining forest conservation with economic gains through sustainable use. To date, this approach has produced only modest results in terms of changed silvicultural and land-use practices in this area. Direct payments for environmental services (PES) have been suggested as a promising alternative but still remain widely untested in the tropics. This paper first provides a conceptual assessment of PES, comparing the main features of this practice with those of other conservation instruments. Second, the paper discusses a series of critical questions that have been raised about both the environmental and livelihood impacts of PES. It is concluded that some ex ante judgments about the effects of PES may have been overly critical, and that, based on preliminary assessments, there is good reason to continue experimental PES implementation for purposes of consolidating our knowledge."

Pro-poor Payment for Environmental Services: Some Considerations

Pro-poor Payment for Environmental Services: Some Considerations | Payments and rewards for ecosystem services | Scoop.it

2008, Lelmona & Lee

"The Asia-Pacific region has relatively little experience with PES, and risks and challenges remain towards realizing pro-poor PES schemes.

This introductory brief considers several key questions:

- Why consider PES?
- Under what conditions is PES likely to work?
- What is the potential for a pro-poor PES scheme?
- What are the challenges and potential risk for a pro-poor PES?
- Potential roles for governments?"

The efficiency of payments for environmental services in tropical conservation

2007, Wunder in Conservation Biology

"This article looks at the role of payments for environmental services (PES) as a new and more direct way to promote conservation. It aims to demystify PES and clarify its scope for application as a tool for tropical conservation. The main focus is on the supply side of PES (i.e., how to convert PES funding into effective conservation on the ground), which until now has been widely neglected. The article reviews the PES literature for developing countries and combines these findings with observations from the author's field studies in Latin America and Asia. As shown, the major obstacles to effective PES include demand-side limitations and a lack of supply-side know-how regarding implementation. (...), PES are arguably best suited to scenarios of moderate conservation opportunity costs on marginal lands and in settings with emerging, not-yet realized threats. Actors who represent credible threats to the environment will more likely receive PES than those already living in harmony with nature. A PES scheme can thus benefit both buyers and sellers while improving the resource base, but it is unlikely to fully replace other conservation instruments."
