The DFG-funded project “Fair institutions for sustainable agricultural landscapes: An empirical investigation of procedural equity in incentive-based policy instruments“ aims to generate a better understanding of the importance of procedural equity, i.e. fair decision-making processes in local level implementation of incentive-based policy instruments for the sustainable provision of ecosystem services. The project follows an embedded multi-method case study design focusing on Vietnam’s national Payments for Forest Ecosystem Services scheme, as ‘typical’ PES with collective decision-making in local level benefit-sharing mechanisms. The position is part of the working group “Governance of Ecosystem Services”. The central question of this working group is which governance approaches allow for the targeted and equitable provision of societally desired ecosystem services and biodiversity conservation objectives.
