FAO capacity building workshop on Payments for Environmental Services (PES) in Eastern Africa rewarding local communities for sustainable land management

Dar Es Salaam, 4-6 February 2008

As part of PESAL activities, and in collaboration with the Land and Water Division (NRL), FAO held a capacity-building workshop focusing on the potential application of PES mechanisms in East Africa. Organized in collaboration with CARE Tanzania, the workshop explored the potential of PES programmes to provide incentives for Sustainable Land Management in East Africa, and specifically in the Kagera River Basin. Participants discussed obstacles and opportunities for PES development with respect to particular environmental services and built regional partnerships among policy makers and natural resource managers for future collaboration.
