Breaking Ground: Jamaica’s First Payments for Ecosystem Services Scheme
The objective of this TC is to improve the provision of critical ecosystem services (e.g. water quality, biodiversity preservation, erosion control) through a Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) scheme, in the Hope and Yallahs River watersheds, which provide 42% of the water to the capital, Kingston. This TC is critical in order to provide the necessary skills and capacity to support Jamaica's first PES scheme. The expected outcome of this TC is a PES operational manual.
