|Vision and Strategy
The East and Southern African Katoomba Group’s vision is that in five years countries in the region will have in place increasing private sector engagement with PES, enabling policy environments, supporting institutions, and the technical capacity to enable significant development of PES. Within 10 to 15 years, PES will be delivering biophysical and socioeconomic benefits to poor communities living in productive landscapes. And finally, it is envisioned that in 25 years, PES will be contributing significantly to realizing conservation and development outcomes.
- Generate and disseminate PES-related information relevant to the region
- Inform the region’s private sector about PES opportunities
- Support national governments in developing policies that enable “pro-poor” PES
- Strengthen capacity of PES practitioners and other key stakeholders through site-structured learning
