  • The impact of PFES funding differs by location and actor group.
  • To enhance the scale of PFES, and its impacts as a key funding source, the sector must sustain and maximize the potential of existing revenue, carry out strategic investment and use of PFES revenue, and expand to include new potential PFES sources.
