PAYMENT FOR ECOSYSTEM SERVICES (PES)

Payment for Environmental Services (PES) is a mechanism where land owners (farmers) in the upper catchment of Lake Naivasha are rewarded by resources beneficiaries (Water users) in the lower catchment (within 2000 MASL contour) of Lake Naivasha. PES is based on the premise that land owners in the upper catchment undertake land use transformations that provide agreed ecosystem services (Clean water). For this service, the land owners are rewarded financially by the service beneficiaries.
