Conference "Result-based payments.Setting up a network" at the Vienna School of International Studies

Event date: 
16 September 2019

Vienna School of International Studies organizes a conference on topic: "Result-based payments. Setting up a network"

Dates: 16-17th of September 2019
Venue: Vienna School of International Studies, Favoritenstraße 15A, 1040 Vienna, Austria

Context and Objective of the conference:
Result-based payment schemes are increasingly being used as a means of encouraging land managers to change their management practices to protect natural habitats and species. In Europe, the number of these schemes has been steadily growing in the past decades. The result has been a diverse range of different payment models which have now been tested and implemented across the continent, but, as yet, no organizational structure to tie them together.

The aim of this event is to create a user network that enables managers of result-based schemes (and those hoping to implement new schemes) to come together and share experiences on a regular basis. To facilitate this, we will briefly present the different existing European result-oriented schemes. This will be followed by an open discussion covering the view of the farmers and the transferability to other ecosystem services (water, soil and climate). Finally, there will be a discussion on the formation of a “Result-based Payments network”.
