Millennium Ecosystem Assessment - Sub-global assessments

Year: 2007 Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, Emmanuelle Bournay, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Eighteen sub-global assessments were approved as components of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA). These were not designed to provide a scientific sample of any feature of ecosystems or human well-being. Instead, the choice of assessment locations was determined by a combination of interest in undertaking the assessment, interest in using the findings, and availability of resources to undertake the assessment.
