Well-designed monitoring systems are essential if we are to better understand and track changes in the connections between people and the environment. Current monitoring systems fail to do this adequately. This Pursuit focuses on advancing ecosystem services monitoring to better reflect vital connections at several levels. The project will utilize household surveys and censuses, in-situ observations, and national indicators as data sources. Close engagement with management and stakeholder communities will ensure that scientifically robust standards produced over the course of the project will lead to strengthened management of the interactions between humans and the environment.
