Challenges for developing Forest Stewardship Council certification for ecosystem services: How to enhance local adoption?

Sini Savilaakso and Manuel R. Guariguata

Ecosystem Services, 2017, vol. 28, issue PA, 55-66

Abstract: The rise of ecosystem services (ES) as a conservation and management tool has changed the way forests are conceived, but so far its translation into management actions has been limited. In this paper, we discuss the development of certification of forest ecosystem services (FES) from the perspective of those implementing it at the local level. We focus on the lessons that emerged from applying the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification framework at selected sites in Chile, Indonesia, Nepal and Vietnam.
