Description

The Pilot Analysis of Global Ecosystems (PAGE) provides a "big picture" view of ecosystems using indicators and maps at global and continental scales. PAGE assessed five of the world?s major ecosystem types: agroecosystems, forest ecosystems, freshwater systems, grassland ecosystems, and coastal and marine ecosystems. The PAGE study evaluated the state of ecosystems by examining the condition of a range of goods and services these ecosystems produce, including:

  • Food and fiber production
  • Provision of pure and sufficient water
  • Maintenance of biodiversity
  • Storage of atmospheric carbon
  • Provision of recreation and tourism opportunities
This "goods and services approach" makes explicit the link between the biological capacity of ecosystems and human well-being -- between the condition of ecosystems and their potential to support human development.
