Local PES schemes are institutional arrangements to transfer resources from users of ecosystem services to the owners of the forestland where the services are generated, with the aim of promoting the adoption of best management practices and the conservation of land that will maintain and/or improve the provision of these services. This strategy takes into account water basins, biological corridors and/or priority areas for the conservation of forest ecosystems. Conafor encourages ecosystem service users to become involved in these local programs through a matching funds arrangement whereby users of ecosystem services (cities, water utilities, businesses, etc.) are called on to make financial contributions to be used for best management practices for the conservation and restoration of forest ecosystems.

 This solution defines good forest management practices that will contribute to high quality drinking water production. Forest managers’ undertakings for drinking water offer an efficient way to produce cheap, high quality drinking water under contract. Maintaining plant cover and soil protection, extensive management, low nitrate content in the water leaching into the ground, purifying functions and natural image: foresters have every reason to take pride in their role in preserving clean drinking water resources – a role that deserves to be given greater prominence.
