Ecosystems Services & Management

The Ecosystems Services and Management (ESM) Program aims to improve our understanding of ecosystems in today’s changing world—in particular, the current state of ecosystems, and their ecological thresholds and buffering capacities.

Brazil

The strategic goal of ESM is supporting policy makers in developing rational, realistic and science-based regional, national and global strategies for the production of food, feed, fiber, and bio-energy that sustain ecosystem services and safeguard food security. By using advanced theories of applied systems analysis, new information technologies and integrated biophysical, social and economic modeling techniques; ESM is charting possible pathways to the future by linking ecosystems, society, policy, and governance.
