PES is considered a nature-based solution contributing to disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation with socio-economic benefits. It has also been emphasized as an innovative financing method to increase restoration and conservation of forest resources, ensure sustainable use, and address deforestation. As part of this passionate call to action, immediate efforts to speed up the restoration of degraded ecosystems have played a significant role in combating global warming, improving food security, providing clean water, and conserving the planet’s biodiversity.

This policy brief highlights the collective discussions identified from the short-term training course on “Payments for Ecosystem Services: How PES services as a financial instrument or mechanism in the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030” held from July 19-23, 2021.
