"'Ecosystem services' means the benefits people obtain from ecosystems, including: provisioning services such as food, water, timber and fiber; regulating services that affect climate, floods, disease, wastes and water quality; cultural services that provide recreational, aesthetic and spiritual benefits; and supporting services such as soil formation, photosynthesis and nutrient cycling. Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES -- contractual transactions for a service or a land use/management practice likely to secure that service) have the potential to be an environmentally effective, economically efficient and socially equitable tool for implementing integrated water resources management.
