Forest conservation and the global south
Research theme: Environmental justice and the global south.
In the context of sustainable development, both developed and developing countries are implementing policies that encourage economic growth, environmental protection and social well-being in natural resource decisions.
This project argues for a more realistic and equitable approach to payment for ecosystem services in the Global South. The focus of the project is on the strengthening participatory tools, third-party monitoring and environmental stewardship to improve the multiple forest ecosystem services.
