Western Landowners Alliance Releases Guide on Payments for Stewardship

The Western Landowners Alliance has released a new publication titled Paying for Stewardship: A Western Landowners’ Guide to Conservation Finance. This guide presents some ways landowners can earn compensation for their stewardship efforts directly or indirectly, through schemes sometimes referred to as payments for ecosystem services, ecosystem services markets, or conservation finance. The guide provides both descriptions and illustrative case studies of these strategies at work.
