Water, wildlife and people

Publication date:
October 2008
Despite human dependence upon ecosystem services, such as food protection and the purification of water and air, society persists in damaging them through our behaviour and resource use. As human populations continue to grow, an ecosystems-based approach is required to ensure equitable and sustainable decision-making for resource use. This issue presents the case for placing a value on ecosystems and coordinated mechanisms for their management.
