Payment for Ecosystem Services in the Ecuadorian Andes
Assistant Professor of Geography, San Diego State University
High elevation páramo grasslands are home to rich natural resources and rare plants as well as a variety of land uses such as agriculture and grazing.
Kathleen Farley will present results of a multi-year study in Ecuadorian páramos where innovative “payment for ecosystem services” models may allow economic development to coexist with preserving ecosystem services that the grasslands provide, such as offsetting climate change by removing and storing carbon from the atmosphere.
