Who pays for the water quality and supply, biodiversity, and carbon storage provided by forests, wetlands, and grasslands?
These are the questions Roy Brouwer, economics professor and executive director of the Water Institute, wants to answer. As a principal investigator of the global assessment of payments for watershed services, Professor Brouwer will share how this assessment will help make payment schemes more cost-effective and efficient.
Learn why the assessment of payment schemes for watershed services is important to determining the appropriate market price and how it will impact the conservation of water resources at the second event of the Fall 2017 Research Talks series at noon on Friday, October 27.
Light refreshments will be provided but feel free to bring your lunch.
