VNN Projects

Well-being and ecosystem services - the impacts of climate change in developing countries

New research published in the journal Conservation and Society finds that current ecosystem service frameworks do not adequately reflect the perspectives of people in developing countries. Drawing on the fields of environmental sciences, economics, psychology, sociology and anthropology, this VNN project synthesised key themes from dominant frameworks to discover how the well-being of the world's most impoverished populations, those that most directly rely on ecosystem services, are taken into account.
