Exploring the Links: Human Well-being, Poverty and Ecosystem Services
» Anantha K. Duraiappah, IISD, 2004.
Book, 46 pages, copyright: IISD, UNEP, ISBN 1-895536-86-3
Exploring the Links sets out to demonstrate how human well-being is
dependent upon ecosystems and ecosystem services; to identify barriers and
drivers that prevent the poor from using these ecosystem services to
improve their well-being, in essence perpetuating poverty; and to identify policy response options to remove the barriers, re-design or even introduce new intervention strategies to allow the poor to improve their well-being
through an ecosystem approach.
