Liang (researcher, China National Forestry Economics and Development Research Center) provides an evaluation of China's payment policies for forest ecosystem services, one of the Chinese government's policies initiated to reverse the degradation of its forests. The payment for ecosystem services (PES) policies are intended to change the traditional methods of forest management and to encourage sustainable use with financial incentives. The author explores theoretical perspectives for PES and local PES schemes in different locations of the country. His conclusion touches on their environmental effectiveness, economic impacts, participation, and other related topics. The book will interest policy makers and government advisers in China, donor agencies, academics, and students in related fields. Distributed in the U.S. by Enfield.
