9781559633918: Ecosystems and Human Well-Being: Volume 2 Scenarios: Findings of the Scenarios Working Group (Millennium Ecosystem Assessment Series)

Scenarios are an invaluable tool for analyzing complex systems and understanding possible outcomes. This second volume of the MA series explores the implications of four different approaches for managing ecosystem services in the face of growing human demand for them:

The Global Orchestration approach, in which we emphasize equity, economic growth, and public goods, reacting to ecosystem problems when they reach critical stages.

Order from Strength, which emphasizes security and economic growth.

Adapting Mosaic, which emphasizes proactive management of ecosystems, local adaptation, and flexible governance.

TechnoGarden, a globalized approach with an emphasis on green technology and a proactive approach to managing ecosystems.

The Scenarios volume will help decision-makers and managers identify development paths that better maintain the resilience of ecosystems, and can reduce the risk of damage to human well-being and the environment.
