New forest trends for Africa
Projects and initiatives which demonstrate the current innovations and challenges to carbon, water, biodiversity payments for ecosystem services (PES) implementation in Africa are featured in this booklet. It is hoped that this publication, (coupled with training sessions, policy advice, legal analysis, and network building) will enable community leaders, government actors, NGO technical staff, project developers and other interested persons to gain access to PES best practice, build a local community of PES learning, craft policies that are supportive of PES, and design PES projects which provide lasting ecosystem services and livelihood benefits.
