Resumen:
The case is developed around the funding challenges faced by Alexandra Saenz, Project Manager of FONAFIFO (National Fund for Forestry Financing), as the institutionalized Costa Rican governmental entity in charge of management of all Payment of Environmental Services (PES) in the country. The case explores in detail the evolution and current funding structure of FONAFIFO´s programs. Obtaining funds from the common citizen is proposed as a possible sustainable funding source, based on the model of the PES program for the water/power utility company (ESPH: Empresa de Servicios Publicos de Heredia) implemented at the city of Heredia, Costa Rica. The discussion key point gravitates around the required mechanisms to raise awareness and involvement of the common citizens so they could become funding sources. Paying upstream landowners for watershed protection directly derives in benefits of water provision and quality, benefits that historically have been considered free of charge.
