Reimagining ecosystem-based adaptation practices based on community priorities and preferences in The Gambia
- Impact Area
The findings of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment Report of 2005 have changed the global perceptions on how humanity — in search of environmental goods and services— is contributing to ecosystem changes and the consequences of these changes to human and ecosystem wellbeing.
The report establishes that 60% of ecosystem goods and services are being degraded or used unsustainably, which may affect the ability of the future generations to access them if status quo remains. These changes are attributed to both human activities and changing climate.
