On 19 January 2015 researchers from across the United Kingdom and elsewhere took part in discussions on the social, ecological, and economic contexts for payments for ecosystem services in developing nations as well as within the United Kingdom. The workshop was convened at the University of York and involved multiple university partners from North Yorkshire and the ESRC.
Talks were given by Niall Marriot (Carbon Plus Capital LLP) “Distributing Risk and Benefit between Multiple Stakeholders in Sustainable PES Design and Implementation”, Mark Reed (Birmingham City University) “Best Practice in Developing PES Schemes: Evidence from Defra’s PES Pilot Scheme” and Rosalind Bark (Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy) “Non Traditional Payments for Ecosystem Services”.
