Happy 2019 with CPES project!
Let's start a new year!
A year has already flown by for the Interreg CPES project! It started in December 2017 with the first partner workshop in Bognor Regis hosted by the University of Chichester, our lead partner. 2018 ended in style with the meeting of the partners on the Normandy pilot sites in December in Evreux. During the past year, many tasks have been completed to pave the way for the construction of payments for ecosystem services in the six case-study catchments. All the partners wish you splendid successes and wonderful discoveries for 2019!

2019, a full agenda!
As 2018 was, 2019 promises to be full of activities! Of course, the two project workshops will be key events in June and December. But also expect multiple activities in each of the case-study areas. Indeed, if 2018 was the year of foundation, 2019 will be the year of implementation. The actions of the partners will focus on the design of the payments for ecosystem services, and by 2020 they will use these financial tools as incentives to change agricultural practices. For the six particular case-studies, there will be six unique PES schemes. The actions to achieve this have already started; follow their evolution over this year!
