Learning Session 9: Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) and REDD+
WWF Forest and Climate Initiative’s online Learning Sessions are free and designed to leverage and share REDD+ knowledge and expertise. Every month, we invite a REDD+ expert to present a webinar on a key issue, so that REDD+ practitioners around the globe can have access to the latest information related to REDD+.
Please join us at our next online REDD+ Learning Session on Wednesday, March 27 at 10am EDT/1500 CET.
National and jurisdictional REDD+ strategies often include payments to land owners and local communities for reducing emissions. Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) has been in existence for the last 15 years and can provide many valuable lessons for REDD+, not only regarding the payment allocation, but also in terms of monitoring systems, institutional arrangements and contract options.
This webinar will start with a presentation by Pablo Gutman, Senior Director, Environmental Economics at WWF US, on PES, and the pros, cons and major issues of translating PES to REDD+. Josefina Braña, Policy Lead for WWF’s Forest and Climate Initiative, will then share lessons learned from PES in Mexico that can be applied to REDD+.
A Q+A session will follow the presentation.
