Adaptation challenge

  • The case study in Chambok Commune in Cambodia exemplified a community-based management suitable for PFES implementation.
  • The factors contributing to successes include local organization, low administrative costs, transparency of benefit-sharing to service providers, and active participation of villagers in complying with the program regulations.
  • The failures of some PFES programs are a result of inequity in benefit-sharing, lack of capacity to monitor participants and carry out measures for non-compliance, poor quality of services and lack of communication skills.

Expected outputs

The research project aims to evaluate the performance and impacts of the pilot PFES program in Lam Dong province and to assess potentials to adopt in Laos and Cambodia. The result of research will establish the basis for the development of the legal framework for national policy on payment for forest environmental services for implementation in practice.
