The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment launched
Experts warn ecosystem changes will continue to worsen, putting global development goals at risk. A landmark study released today reveals that approximately 60 percent of the ecosystem services that support life on Earth – such as fresh water, capture fisheries, air and water regulation, and the regulation of regional climate, natural hazards and pests – are being degraded or used unsustainably. Scientists warn that the harmful consequences of this degradation could grow significantly worse in the next 50 years. GRID-Arendal has produced the graphics for the report.
