WEPES (Wetland Example of Payments for Ecosystem Services)

The Westcountry Rivers Trust works to secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of the rivers, streams, watercourses and water impoundments in the region. Among its projects is Wetland Example of Payments for Ecosystem Services (WEPES), which is restoring a section of historic floodplain on the River Fal in West Cornwall. This includes an economic evaluation of the direct and indirect ecosystem services benefits, as well as identifying and selling the most economically beneficial services to local investors.
