Exploring the Links: Human Well-being, Poverty and Ecosystem Services

By Anantha K. Duraiappah on August 2, 2004
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.
