EU ‘WATER’ Conference – Wednesday, 27th June 2012
‘Payments for Ecosystem Services and Catchment Restoration’
Payments for Ecosystem Services are an increasingly topical mechanism for investing in the restoration of rivers catchments. The WATER project was set up to investigate the role of wetted land within a catchment and identifying the assessment, techniques and economics of restoration. This conference sets the two main objectives of the projects; firstly, a catchment portal that identifies the different brokers working across our rivers; and secondly, a series of guides aimed at setting up PES projects – The Upstream Thinking project is linked with the WATER project and is put under the microscope to showcase the processes involved in its creation, implementation and future.
For more information about the Conference (27th), Conference Dinner (27th) and Field Trip (28th) and to reserve your place, no later than Monday 11th June, please follow this link to the DRAFT Conference Programme and Booking Form.
