Paying for watershed services to cities in Peru

Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR)

Peru

This innovation case focuses on how part of the urban water tariff in the city of Cusco can be used to provide a reward for ecosystem services around Piuray Lake, located near the city.

Local and national stakeholders are involved in developing the knowledge base needed for the reward mechanism, via participatory workshops to analyse problems and propose solutions which will facilitate environmental management and provide essential information on how to manage trade-offs between local rural needs and urban water demand.
