Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) vs Water Framework Directive (WFD) targets (2016-2020).

The CNPF's expertise on forest-water partnerships is expected in this project. The CNPF is involved in two working groups :

  • the first one seeks to assess the effectiveness of afforestation to reduce diffuse agricultural pollution,
  • the second one relates to payments for environmental services (PES) and the estimation of cost-effectiveness measures of afforestation.
