Description

In this seminar, Seema Jayachandran, will discuss the research findings and the results of the 3ie-funded PES study in Uganda. The study found that the PES programme reduced deforestation and forest degradation. Tree cover was measured using high-resolution satellite imagery to measure impact of the programme. In treatment villages, rate of decline of tree cover declined was found to be slower (by 2% to 5%) as compared to control villages (7% to 10%) during the study period. The study also found that in the villages where the programme was implemented, there was a reduced 'social cost of carbon', the value placed on delayed carbon-dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.
