Introduction & Target Audience

Acting on Ecosystem Service Opportunities

Preface

‘‘Win-win solutions’ that can combine conservation and livelihoods benefits may not always be found, but it is definitely worth looking for them. Embarking on this search in collaboration with stakeholders may often lead to surprising and innovative ideas.

 

In our work between the science and practice of nature conservation and sustainable development, we have detected that practitioners often struggle to identify - and tap into the potentials of – the policy and financing instruments that could work in their particular context. Academic debate on the issue addresses many relevant points but often uses generalized framings, complex formats and academic language which are unfamiliar to those working on their implementation.

 

The guidelines presented here should serve as a compass for practitioners towards recognizing the opportunities for their specific context and towards selecting and planning suitable instruments which will lead to more sustainable practices. We hope that the tool will inspire and structure the quest for policy and financing solutions and eventually bring about conservation and livelihoods benefits alike.
