dc.description.abstractThis report provides a descriptive overview of 50 payments for environmental services schemes in operation in grasslands and other grazing lands worldwide and in Mongolia. Payments for environmental services are one potential mechanism to provide land users in grasslands with incentives to increase the supply of positive externalities of grassland utilization (e.g., biodiversity), and decrease the supply of negative externalities (e.g., soil erosion or carbon emissions). The main distinction between payments for environmental services and other forms of incentives or support is that payments for environmental services schemes make payments conditional upon performance of improved management or delivery of environmental services.
