Payments for Ecosystem Services in Urban Areas: The Case of Sydney– EP. 08

January 19, 2020

In this episode we speak with Dr. Benjamin Thompson, a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Sydney to discuss the financing strategies and economic viability of Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) in the context of urban settings.  In our session we discuss Ben's ecosystem services habitat restoration publication: Urban Ecosystems: A New Frontier for Payments for Ecosystem Services and dig deeper into the key considerations in terms of equity, and ecosystem disservices as potential difficulties when applying PES schemes in urban cores like the CBD of Sydney.
