Health and Sport as a Forest Ecosystem Services in Protected Areas and Payment for Ecosystem Services

Jurević Varga, M., Popijač, M., Tišma, S. 2019. Book of Abstracts: 54th Croatian & 14th International Symposium on Agriculture The multifunctional role of the forest is reflected in the preservation of the environment and biodiversity, the mitigation of the consequences of climate change, the preservation of the quality and quantity of drinking water and soil, and it creates the preconditions for the development of green economy. Demand for forest Ecosystem Services (FES) is increasing, due to growing populations and socio-economic changes. The aim of the research is to valorise the health function of the FES and develop the Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) methodology. Public Institution Nature [...]

Impacts of forests and forestation on hydrological services in the Andes: A systematic review

Bonnesoeur, V., Locatelli, B., et al. 2019 Forest Ecology and Management, 433 Several Andean countries have planned to restore forest cover in degraded land to enhance the provision of multiple ecosystem services in response to international commitments such as the Bonn Challenge. Hydrological services, e.g. water supply, hydrological regulation and erosion mitigation, are particularly important to sustain the life of more than fifty million Andean people. While rapid and important forest cover changes have occurred during recent decades, critical information on the impact of forestation on hydrological services has not yet been synthesized in the context of Andean ecosystems. To help [...]

Participation and compensation claims in voluntary forest landscape conservation: The case of the Ruka-Kuusamo tourism area, Finland

Mäntymaa, E., Juutinen, A., Tyrväinen, L., Karhu, J. and Kurttila, M., 2018 Journal of Forest Economics, 33 The expansion of nature-based tourism on private land requires new mechanisms to coordinate tourism industry and commercial forestry interests. This attribute-based contingent valuation study elaborated the supply side of potential payments for ecosystem services (PES) mechanism named Landscape and Recreational Values Trading (LRVT), proposed to enhance the provision of amenity values in privately owned forests located in tourism and recreation areas. Using a mail survey data set, we analyzed forest owners’ willingness to participate in LRVT and the related compensation claims in the Ruka-Kuusamo area, [...]

Impacts of forestation on water and soils in the Andes: What do we know?

Bonnesoeur, V., Locatelli, B. and Ochoa-Tocachi, B.F., 2018. CIFOR Info Brief 237 This brief summarises the findings of a systematic review on the impacts of forestation on water and soils in the Andes (detailed in Bonnesoeur et al., 2018). Exotic tree plantations and, to a lesser extent, native forests consume water and therefore often reduce the total water supply to downstream users in most Andean regions. Only in areas immersed in clouds, such as in the eastern slope of the Andes, might native forests increase downstream water availability compared to other land covers. Decreased total water supply could be acceptable to [...]

Auction mechanisms for setting aside forest for biodiversity

Thorsen, BJ, Strange, N, Jacobsen, JB, Termansen, M & Lundhede, T. 2018. IFRO Report, no. 267 The Danish government has set specific goals for setting aside forest land for biodiversity purposes in the form of untouched forests, where no production forestry operations can be undertaken. Part of these goals will be fulfilled on public and state owned forest land, and parts will be fulfilled on private lands. Setting aside forest land as untouched with the restriction that no further harvest can take place implies the loss of future income from forestry net of related forest operation costs and in 2017 a support grant scheme was designed [...]
