Toelichting In 2013, we published in Water Governance a paper about a unique project that explored the added value of the Ecosystem Services approach in a real world, regional water management case. Between 2011 and 2013, regional water managers and other stakeholders explored the costs and benefits of planned river restoration measures in a transboundary part (Germany and the Netherlands) of the Vecht river. At a very early stage of the planning process, a draft design of measures was shared with and jointly assessed by the regional stakeholders for its anticipated impact on the ecosystem services that were important to them. Participants stated that a structured ecosystem services assessment was beneficial since it provided them more insight in the (potential) effects of the proposed measures on the specific ecosystem services that they themselves as well as different other stakeholders value. The assessment revealed that costs and benefits related to river restoration can be better balanced and the regional water managers are interested to find partners willing to co-invest in the restoration measures. Therefore, our follow-up project focussed on a simulated negotiation for a payment for ecosystem services (PES) scheme in which those stakeholders who benefit from a restored river co-invest in the restoration effort and those who face costs are compensated. The negotiation did result in the identification of some additional (public) funding for the restoration effort. However, the pre-set target budget needed for implementation of the measures was not obtained. A reason for that could be that some of the stakeholders in the negotiation process had the opinion that the related water managers will anyhow restore the river simply as they have to in order to meet the objectives of the Water Framework Directive. However, if measures need to be prioritized and can in reality only be implemented if co-funding can be found, PES negotiation may proof a useful instrument to sharpen the insights in the actual costs and benefits and facilitate the identification of that co-funding.
