La reciente publicación de la prestigiosa revista Nature Sustainability en el que participa el Investigador Ikerbasque en el BC3, Unai Pascual, afirma que, si bien los pagos por servicios ambientales son una herramienta valiosa en todo el mundo para proteger el medio ambiente, es imprescindible su evaluación y adecuación a cada contexto cultural y socio-económico.
Payments for Environmental Services (PES) constitute an innovative economic intervention to counteract the global loss of biodiversity and ecosystem functions. In theory, some appealing features should enable PES to perform well in achieving conservation and welfare goals. In practice, outcomes depend on the interplay between context, design and implementation. Inspecting a new global dataset, we find that some PES design principles pre-identified in the social-science literature as desirable, such as spatial targeting and payment differentiation, are only partially being applied in practice.
