The report outlines the results of the study conducted by WWF and IEEP for the European Commission. The study explored the possibilities for establishing PES schemes for biodiversity conservation in two new EU Member States and three Candidate Countries (Bulgaria, Croatia, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Romania and Turkey). The study results indicate that appropriately designed PES schemes can provide a potentially useful tool for supporting conservation of biodiversity in Eastern Europe.
