Abstract
In the Global South, payments for environmental services (PES) have become increasingly popular as a tool to promote environmental conservation combined with poverty reduction. However, a number of concerns have been raised about this policy tool at the conceptual level. In the following debate, Gert Van Hecken and Kahlil Baker confront their views on this topic, with particular attention to issues of global environmental justice.
