AbstractFacing rapid ecological degradation in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau (QTP), the determination of priority areas for conservation (CPAs) based on ecosystem services (ESs) is a key step for nature conservation and sustainable development. However, the trade-off between services makes the plan of maintaining protected areas (PAs) a challenge. In this study, by quantifying a variety of essential ESs in the QTP from 2000 to 2015, we used the multi-criteria ordered weighted average method to balance the trade-offs and determine the key CPAs for ES conservation. We found that the multi-criteria based selection of CPAs leads to higher (1.35) and more balanced ES protection efficiency (PE) than the single strategy. The CPAs obtained based on the logical framework of this paper are mainly located in the southeastern QTP and cover an area of 12.78 % of the QTP (330,124.76 km2). The comprehensive PE of ES was 1.68, and the PE of carbon storage, water yield, soil conservation, and cultural service were 2.20, 2.17, 4.54, and 1.59, respectively. Additionally, compared with the existing PA settings, our results can increase the proportion of biodiversity of amphibians and birds by more than 12 %. The framework of CPAs selection in this paper can provide a reference for the government's growing nature conservation affairs, which will contribute to sustainable development.
