The community-based natural resource management (CBNRM) programme in Namibia has been globally praisedasasuccessfulapproachforbiodiversityandanimal conservation. Going beyond such bright picture at the national level, Humavindu & Stage (2014) disentangle financial returns from all conservancies and rightfully contend that the recent and rapid development of many, less attractive conservancies limits their financial viability, and in turn jeopardizes their acceptance by local farmers as well as their long-term conservation potential.

Debates about the role of economic valuation in market-based conservation have proliferated in recent years. Specifically, scholars have engaged with the justice implications of non-market valuation and the emergence of new policy instruments paying for or trading ecosystem services and biodiversity. I hereby contribute to these debates by responding to a published commentary in this journal and I shed light on what I believe should be a new agenda for critical scholarship of market-based conservation.

la notion de « Service écosystémique » (SE) s’est peu à peu imposée en tant que norme dans les discours internationaux et contribue à (re)légitimer des instruments d’action publique déjà existants tels que les « paiements pour services environnementaux » qui se sont développés aussi bien au Nord qu’au Sud. Elle questionne alors la capacité des États à concevoir leurs politiques environnementales.

We draw on theoretical insights and practical lessons from case studies to show that most policy arrangements for the management of ecosystem services adopt hybrid governance forms, where the market element (when it is present at all) tends to be only one dimension in a complex institutional matrix.
