This session seeks to explore the range of factors that play a role in participant buy-in to incentivized pro-environment programs, including payment for ecosystem/ environmental services (PES) projects, forest conservation programs, and combined regulatory-assisted land management schemes, with a special focus on the interplay of intrinsic, extrinsic, and normative motivations. Purely economic explanations fall short when considering participation, while anecdotal and early academic experience indicate the importance of intrinsic and normative factors. The session broadly asks: what, besides incentives, plays a role in participation in pro-environment behavior, and what does that mean for program success in the near and longer term?
