Xing, Lu; Hetong, Li | October 2005
By studying different types of reward schemes, this paper analyzes the reward mechanism for those who utilize environmental services. It probes into the relationship between providers and beneficiaries of environmental services, arguing that bottlenecks in the payment for environmental services remain a major problem. This results in a lack of willingness among beneficiaries to pay for them. To improve the status of the deteriorating ecological environment in the country, it is suggested that further studies on reward mechanisms be undertaken to explore and test various types, while continuing to raise awareness on environmental issues.
