The book synthesises the ESPA programme's compelling evidence on ecosystems and wellbeing. It addresses the evolving framings and contexts of ecosystem services for poverty alleviation, reviews the impacts of ongoing drivers of change and presents new ways to achieve sustainable wellbeing, equity, diversity, and resilience.
The dependence of the world’s poorest people on the environment and their contribution to its stewardship are often ‘hidden’ in public debates and decision-making processes. Trade-offs and any potential human costs must be understood and explicitly addressed. An environmental justice approach can help achieve this.
This synthesis of ten ESPA agriculture projects assesses whether - and how - climate-smart agriculture can be developed in an equitable way that helps all people to move out of poverty.
Many national policies and international agreements include goals to protect ecosystem services. This guidebook helps readers to assess how ecosystem service models could support policy-making in their countries and is based on practical experiences in sub-Saharan Africa.
This paper presents a synthesis of findings from Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda on the role of social protection programmes in contributing to people’s capacity to absorb, anticipate and adapt to climate-related shocks and stresses.
