The aim of the PESFOR-W COST Action is to synthesize knowledge, provide guidance and encourage collaborative research to improve Europe’s capacity to use Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) to achieve Water Framework Directive (WFD) targets & other policy objectives through incentives for planting woodlands to reduce agricultural diffuse pollution to watercourses.
The PESFOR-W COST Action now invites you to its final conference. The conference will introduce the state-of-the-art in the field, and will showcase the work done by the members of the COST action. Three stakeholders from policy, science and practice will illustrate what Woodland-for-Water PES can do and how they can be implemented.
The conference is organised by EFI (European Forest Institute) on behalf of the PESFOR-W COST Action as a virtual event, at no cost to the attendees.
The programme for the conference is below.
