Shed Loads - paying to protect watersheds
DVD (any region)
Payments for watershed services compensate land users and owners for the services that they can provide. New York City is assisting farmers to change their landuse and by doing so has avoided the cost of constructing a massive water purification plant. Implementing similar changes in developing countries is extremely challenging. 'Shed Loads - paying to protect watersheds' looks at the potential and problems for watershed services in Africa, Asia and The Americas.
