Payments for ecosystem services have the potential to conserve primate habitat by paying landowners for the preservation or enhancement of ecosystem processes, such as carbon storage, water provision, or pollination. At present, payments to preserve the carbon stock in forests have received most attention because of their potential as a cost-effective climate change mitigation strategy. The potential of these initiatives for biodiversity conservation is also gaining recognition. In this chapter we provide an overview of payment for ecosystem services with a particular focus on Reducing Deforestation and Forest Degradation programmes (REDD+), the largest payment for ecosystem services initiative worldwide. The opportunities of REDD+ initiatives to boost biodiversity and primate conservation are discussed.

Keywords:   biodiversity, conservation, deforestation, reducing deforestation and forest degradation, REDD+, payment for ecosystem services, PES
