About this book

Market-based approaches are thought to offer considerable promise as a means to promote forest conservation and as a new source of income for rural communities. However, it has proven difficult to translate the theory into practice. Based on extensive research and case studies on markets for biodiversity conservation, watershed protection and carbon sequestration, this book demonstrates how payment systems can be established in practice, their effectiveness and their implications for the poor.
