Incentive-based Instruments for Freshwater Management


Incentive-based InstrumentsFebruary 8, 2016, Oakland, Calif. – A recently released synthesis report, interactive tool, and digital collection from the Pacific Institute and the Foundation Center provide key lessons from the review of hundreds of case studies, evaluations, journal articles, and white papers about incentive-based approaches to the management of freshwater resources.

Commissioned by The Rockefeller Foundation, this synthesis is an effort not only to better understand the conditions for successfully implementing these approaches but also to inform future initiatives and investments with already existing, practice-based knowledge from nonprofit practitioners, funders, and researchers. All of the results from this project are freely available for funders, practitioners, and researchers to use, contribute to, and build on in their work.
