This presentation describes an ongoing WWF initiative to implement PES schemes and scale-up existing PES programs, the 2010 outcome Goals and current output and activities.

“With traditional sources of funding dwindling, a variety of PES and related schemes have emerged as potential sources of sustainable financing for conservation. Yet thus far most PES are small in size, cumbersome to manage and are not rural-poor friendly. This WWF program seeks to address these limitations by focusing on how to scale-up current PES and other sustainable financing schemes so that they deliver substantial and long-lasting conservation while alleviating rural poverty.”
