Payment for ecosystem services in Rialb reservoir

Included in the European project SINCERE and coordinated by the Center for Forest Property, Joan Pons of INSTA offered a training session for the design of a payment program for forest ecosystem services in the Rialb reservoir.

The objective of the training was to highlight the main aspects to take into account, provide examples of similar programs from other countries and, at the same time, make specific proposals for operation and legal framework for the specific case.

As a result of this session, INSTA also received the task of preparing a report on the administrative and fiscal mechanism that should have a future forest ecosystem services payment system.
