To help build the capacities in design of PES schemes needed, IUCN-The World Conservation Union, in partnership with GEF IW:LEARN and the World Bank Institute, is planning a 3-day regional workshop on designing payment schemes for ecosystem services. The workshop will bring togetherexperts and practitioners working in freshwater and marine environments in a joint event, to foster learning, sharing of experience and innovation.

The workshop will be facilitated by a team of specialists with experience of PES projects. Participants will be provided with key learning materials, including the toolkit PAY – Establishing Payments for Watershed Services, part of the IUCN Water and Nature Toolkit Series (see http://www.iucn.org/about/work/programmes/water/resources/toolkits/).

Training will be based on real-world cases where PES are being used to create incentives for sustainable management of river basins or marine environments. Participants will use lessons from these cases to adapt approaches for designing and coordinating development of PES schemes for application in Asia.

The workshop is aimed at senior managers and specialists from GEF International Waters projects in Asia and partners in government, basin management agencies and civil society.
