Abstract

In this paper we review CV studies conducted in the context of PES programs, almost all of which attempt to estimate the demand of downstream water users for upstream watershed protection and, more generally, for improved water services. Our objective is to assess the quality of these CV-PES studies, and their usefulness for designing PES programs.
