A study of a pilot PES scheme in Maramureş, Romania
We all like beautiful natural landscapes, but we largely take this “cultural service” for granted. What if we assess the value of this service nature provides us with and contribute to its maintenance so we enjoy it in the future too?
WWF chose a pilot area located in Maramures County, in the north of Romania and set out to demonstrate how the interlinked natural and cultural assets can be saved from depletion by inviting tourists and tourism companies to pay for conservation activities that make their holidays inspiring and pleasurable and their business profitable respectively.
