Farmers’ Preferences for Management Options as Payment for Environmental Services Scheme

In developing countries opportunity exists for the application of policy instruments like Payment for Environmental Services (PES) to address the challenges of poverty and environmental degradation. Assessing the preferences of farmers for management scenarios provides an inroad into the application of this tool and should be considered by policy makers and practitioners. Using conjoint analysis this study found that farmers’ ranking of management scenarios is affected by the commitment period and land sizes exceeding 40% of their total land size and that their decision to participate was affected by gender, age, household size, awareness, land tenure and annual income.
