Description

This is the website for The Leverhulme Trust and Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)-funded research project: "Can payment for ecosystem services deliver environmental and livelihood benefits?"

The project is a three-year-long series of investigations hosted at the School of Environment, Natural Resources and Geography, Bangor University, in collaboration with local NGO partners in Bolivia and Madagascar. Our aim is to provide research to inform the development and implementation of ecosystem service payment schemes as well as other incentive-based approaches so as to maximise their potential in contributing to environmental conservation and improving the welfare of local people.

Our research is based on two case studies, in Bolivia and Madagascar.

The research is a collaborative project between multiple partners:

SENRGy, Bangor University
Nature Foundation Bolivia
Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust
University of Mahajunga
