All biological lives need a supply of external energy. Most Plants are capable of photosynthesis, some bacteria employ natural sources of chemical energy. Many other organisms require different types of energy to grow. Beyond this biological need of humanity, technologically advance societies have increasingly weaken in their dependence on external energy for production of many manufactured goods. Where this technological advancement is a wonderful convenience of modern life in particular, there it allows people to live under a diverse condition of climate, in general. Increasing levels of human comforts result in increased dependence on external energy. Conversely, this increased dependence on external energy sources goad to such means of energy sources, which are harmful for the environment. It is therefore why there has been the introduction of pay for ecosystem services (PES) for economic management of the environment (Arocena-Francisco, 2003, p. 5-8). The aim of this paper is to assess the strength and the weaknesses of pay for ecosystem services (PES) for economic management of the environment
In the use of the PES mechanism of Eco-labeling or certified forest products, the major strength is its demand which is at a steady fast growth and is fuelled by worry about imports that have been illegally obtained. It has also shown strength in its prospective to acquire the status of landscape level certification. In the use of the PES mechanism, Authoritarian and deliberate biodiversity counterbalance there are certain strengths and weaknesses that come with it. The strengths include that in applying the PES mechanism of Authoritarian and deliberate biodiversity counterbalance there is the promotion of a self-sustaining and transfers progress to lesser biodiversity regions devoid of hampering goals of national development (Chomitz et al. 2006, p. 12-15).
In the use of the PES mechanism of Environmental protection easements and land trusts, there is the positive aspect and the downside to it. When we look at the strengths or benefits of the use of the PES mechanism of Environmental protection easements and land trusts we see that it facilitates the activities of International NGOs whereby these International NGOs are able to target biodiversity hotspots through management contracts for habitat/species preservation. Environmental protection is the main problem facing humanity nowadays. Ten years ago the world “ecology” hardly meant anything for the majority of people, but today we can’t help bearing it in our minds (Peskett et al. 2007, p. 15-18). It has happened because of the growing effect of the rapid industrial development of the natural world, which has negative features of its own. As a matter of fact the state of environment has greatly worsened of late. There is no doubt that soil, water and air are contaminated with toxic wastes. Over the past few years we have been constantly speaking about ozone holes, droughts, high level...
