We have committed to an ecosystem approach to natural resource management.

We are always looking:

  • for new and innovative ways of attracting money into the rural economy
  • to maximise the value of every pound invested

There are many groups working on projects and initiatives that are classified as PES. These attract funding from a wide range of sources. For more information visit the Ecosystems Knowledge Network.

Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) Practitioners group

The PES practitioners group is a community of practitioners, made up of people working in this area. The group meets 2 - 3 times a year, to:

  • support one another
  • discuss issues and challenges
  • share lessons learned and best practice
  • feed into policy development on PES
