Résumé
The ecosystems of the Lake Naivasha basin are under pressure. In order to improve and sustain watershed services the WWF and CARE have initiated the Payment for Watershed Services (PWS) program. In 2009 a pilot scheme was set up in order to improve the downstream water quality, by training local landowners to take conservation measures on their lands. This relatively new market – based instrument strives to internalize externalities and tries to put a price on the use of an environmental service. This study is focused on how to sustain and enlarge the current user-financed PWS program. Based on a Payment for Environmental Services (PES) literature review, a number of conditions and criteria have been formulated. These are assessed by conducting interviews with local stakeholders
