GRAID insight briefs: Ecosystems matter for development in the Anthropocene
GRAID insight briefs: Ecosystems matter for development in the Anthropocene delves into how ecosystems are critical for human wellbeing, and touches on:
– How even people in modern urbanised societies depend on and impact ecosystems, both nearby and in distant places.
– Benefits from ecosystems result from interactions between humans and nature. These relations influence how both societies and ecosystems evolve over time.
– Access to and distribution of benefits from ecosystems are often unequal.
– In an increasingly globalized world, development needs to simultaneously ensure fair and continued benefits for current and future generations, and tackle the local and global impacts on ecosystems.
GRAID insight briefs are a series which introduce key findings from social-ecological resilience research, and how they relate to development challenges in the Anthropocene.
