Keywords: Payment for Environmental Services, Central Sulawesi, Welfare


Governments at the regional level are mandated to strike a balance between economic development and ecological interests. One approach to achieving this balance is the introduction of the Payment for Environmental Services (PES), which acts as an Environmental Economic Instrument (IELH). Given the importance of ensuring prosperity through the use of natural resources, the role of PES becomes increasingly crucial. Central Sulawesi boasts a wealth of natural resources, yet it's also marked by significant community poverty. This article aims to address the pressing need for PES in enhancing the well-being of Central Sulawesi's residents. Additionally, we will put forth several policy suggestions related to PES that could bolster the welfare of the Central Sulawesi populace.
