We will only have a future if we recover the forests that protect the springs that will generate water for the next generations.

The distribution of different forest benefits to different people (or their access to them), and the changes in these benefit flows, can stimulate public interest, provide critical insights, and inform difficult trade-offs.
Check out www.aboutvalues.net for a hands-on methods navigator guiding through a range of instruments for scoping, assessing or valuing ecosystem services.
There is no need for detailed studies where well-informed approximations can fully serve the purpose. In our experience, supporting administrators in working with an ‚ecosystem service lens‘ is often more effective than conducting monetary valuations and hoping that numbers would speak for themselves.

Make it possible for landowners to receive payment for environmental services in their properties; restore forests in the most important areas of the landscape - watersheds.
