Abstract

This paper explains how payments for urban ecosystem services could help protect, restore, and manage urban ecosystems. Payments for ecosystem services (PES) projects have so far been used in 500 places around the world to provide funding for nature conservation projects. To make PES happen in cities, an improved understanding of urban ecosystem service science is needed.
