Paying for Environmental Services: Using the Contingent Valuation Method to Estimate Willingness to Pay for Conservation in the Sho?llet Forest, Peru

  • Alva, G. T.

In Sho’llet Forest, Peru, the contingent valuation survey method was used to assess low-income people’s willingness to pay for ES, especially in addressing the impact of construction of high voltage electricity towers on the forest.

However this study may have contributed to the methodological development for quantifying willingness to pay in PES mechanisms.
