The BMZ-GIZ-CGIAR session initiates a discussion on the potential of Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) schemes to enhance the economic well-being of smallholders while simultaneously promoting the desired environmental outcomes. Speakers share valuable insights from various PES implementations across Africa, Latin America, and Asia, shedding light on the potential trajectory of future PES schemes.
