Understanding the Hydrological Processes to Build a Payment for Environmental Services (PES) Scheme
Jakarta : CI Indonesia, 2010
The Gedepahala biodiversity corridor, which administratively consists of two national parks, namely the Gunung Gede Pangrango National Park and the Gunung Halimun Salak National Park, is a very important corridor. This corridor supplies various kinds of environmental services for the communities. The ecosystems provide habitat for an incomparable and highly diverse array of flora and fauna of rainforest species.
The hydrological analysis incorporated a study on the watershed characteristics, analysis of maximum and minimum discharges, and spatial analysis (land use/land cover change), which resulted in the identification of critical watersheds and several prioritized areas that are recommended as restoration sites. Furthermore, this report reviews existing PES mechanisms in other countries and identifies the opportunities and limitations of PES when implemented in the Gedepahala biodiversity corridor in order to help in designing the best-fitting schemes.
Finally based on various comprehensive analyses and studies, this report recommends some actions to be taken in the future by stakeholders, including policy makers, for a better land use management and conservation policy.
