Millennium ecosystem assessment

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter in textbook/reference book

Abstract

The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA) was initiated in 2001 with the objective being to assess the consequences of ecosystem change for human wellbeing and the scientific basis for action needed to enhance the conservation and sustainable use of those systems. The outcomes were presented in five technical volumes and six synthesis reports. The combined outputs provided a state-of-the-art appraisal of the condition and trends of the world's ecosystems and the services they provide for people as well as an analysis of the options to restore, conserve, or enhance the sustainable use of ecosystems.
