Barriers and opportunities to implementing Payments for Ecosystem Services schemes and engaging supply chains in river health management

In three of WaterLIFE’s demonstration catchments, we’re working to increase the capacity of those on the ground and, as a result, improve the health of the water environment.

As part of this objective, we carried out research in the Soar, Camlad and Tamar to look at the barriers and opportunities that exist when it comes to implementing Payments for Ecosystems Services scheme and engaging organisations in the supply chain in river health.

This report details how the research was carried out as well as the main recommendations that arose, which will help to steer further activity within the project.
