- Little of the abundant ecosystem services research can directly support decisions.
- Researchers can make their research more relevant for decision makers.
- Relevance is increased by the use of benefit relevant indicators (BRIs).
- Decision makers require methods that balance quality and feasibility.
Ecosystems are being degraded worldwide, reducing biodiversity and threatening human well-being. Especially in developing countries, rural and poor households often depend closely on natural capital for their livelihoods and health. However, the health consequences of ecosystem declines remain difficult to predict. Here, we report on two multicountry analysis to investigate general relationships between ecosystems and human health for these vulnerable populations.
During the June maintenance window we performed a number of upgrades to our software environment. Below is a brief description of what we've been working to bring you.
"Risk Perception in the Provision of Aquatic Ecosystem Services"
This is a closed meeting for a funded group of visiting scholars.
We propose to convene a group of diverse scholars with expertise on the biophysical, psychological, socio-economic, health, and regulatory aspects of water quality issues to:
