Payment for Ecosystem Services Symposium 2017

Policy and payment for ecosystem services in land and water: Australian and global perspectives

Recent natural catastrophes are drawing increased attention to the need to maintain natural capital and ecosystem services for a healthy society and economy. There is also a need for better understanding of the activities and policy approaches which can halt and reverse land and water degradation. 

The Payment for Ecosystem Services Symposium focusses on understanding the practical challenges and state of the art research in managing natural capital in an efficient, environmental and socially equitable way.

This theme will be addressed from the Australian and international perspectives of:

  • Businesses
  • Regulators
  • Public agencies
  • Academics

The Symposium is a free event supported by the University of South Australia, the Government of South Australia, and the Australasian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society.
