About this book

With an estimated 10-15% of the world's fresh water reserves, low levels of pollution and harbouring unique aquatic biodiversity, the Guiana Shield is of global significance also from a hydrological perspective. This report describes both the main features of the hydrology of the Guiana Shield and suggests some possibilities for designing a payment mechanism which would provide incentives to those maintaining the essential hydro-services for humans and nature within and beyond the region.
