Abstract

The eco-compensation mechanism can help alleviate the contradiction between economic-social development and water conservation as well as promote the transformation of economic development mode and the sustained sound development of economic society. In this study, the eco-compensation practices of five typical basins are selected to analyze the eco-compensation characteristics of regional and inter-provincial basins. It is considered that the funds of basin eco-compensation are mainly sourced from the financial funds of governments at all levels, complementary with the support from social donation and special funds. The compensation funds are mainly used for eco-protection construction as well as the prevention and control of water pollution. Meanwhile, the calculation of compensation fund is mainly based on the statistics and monitoring data. Systematical narration is made on the ignored dualization of basin eco-service product existing in the current eco-compensation practice, inadequate attention to the dual nature of compensation subject, insufficient recognition on the duality of compensation object and other problems in this study, so as to provide suggestions for improving the development of basin eco-compensation mechanism.
