PES Implementation and Monitoring Plan in Phewa Watershed

Supported By: WWF/USAID

Summary: The Hariyo Ban Program funded by USAID and implemented by a consortium consisting of WWF, CARE, NTNC and FECOFUN with WWF in the lead aims to reduce adverse impacts of climate change and threats to biodiversity in Nepal. The current Hariyo Ban Program focuses on three specific components – i) biodiversity conservation; ii) sustainable landscapes; and iii) climate change adaptation and the program is working in two landscapes namely Terai Arc Landscape (TAL) and Chitwan-Annapurna Landscape (CHAL).

Hariyo Ban Program is working to build the structures, capacity and operations necessary for effective sustainable landscape management, with a focus on reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+). Establishing systems for the Payment of Ecosystem Services (PES) is one of the major mechanisms for sustainable landscape management. PES and including REDD+ can reduce deforestation and forest degradation as they offer opportunities for immediate financial benefits at local level.
