The authors apply scenario-based interviews to investigate the potential effectiveness of conservation interventions in Cambodia – specifically related to reducing forest clearance in a REDD+ site. Findings show that collective performance payments have the highest potential to reduce clearing, while greater enforcement effort and individually contracted performance payments are expected to perform poorly. Authors suggest that using such predictive methods prior to the implementation of conservation interventions can ensure that limited resources are invested in those interventions that will achieve the strongest outcomes for conservation.
