About the product

The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA) is an international initiative carried out to assess the consequences of ecosystem change for human well-being and to establish the scientific basis for actions to enhance the conservation and sustainable use of ecosystems and their contributions to human well-being. The MA responds to government requests for information received through four international conventions - the Convention on Biological Diversity, the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, and the Convention on Migratory Species - and is designed to meet the needs of other stakeholders, including the business community, the health sector, nongovernmental organisations, and indigenous peoples.
