This work plan is based on the results of a pre-diagnostic analysis comprising a literature review and documents presented at, and ideas discussed during the meetings “Experiences of Compensation for Environmental Services Provided by Ecosystems: The Case of Water” held in Santa Cruz in October 2004, and “Improving Bolivian Water Management: Incentives to Promote Sustainable Watershed Management that Improves Rural Livelihoods“ held in La Paz in November 2004. These meetings brought together a range of stakeholders, government officials and NGOs to initiate the Bolivian component of the project, “Policy Learning in Action: Developing Markets for Watershed Protection Services and Improved Livelihoods” supported by the International Institute for Environment and Development.
