Abstract/Summary

Healthy ecosystems provide many vital, life-supporting, services to humans. Yet the 2005 Millennium Ecosystem Assessment showed that 60% of the world’s ecosystems are being degraded or used unsustainably. By considering the value of ‘ecosystem services’, their importance can be recognised in policy and planning decisions. This may help to halt the current degradation of ecosystems. The Natural Capital Initiative helps to inform the development of policy and practice to support the implementation of the ecosystem approach.
