Harnessing Ecosystem Services to Increase Food Security and Climate Resilience

Dec 07, 2020
,

Throughout West Africa—and indeed the world—the twin concerns of economic security and food security often hinge on the vital link between ecosystems and ecosystem services. Healthy ecosystems provide a diverse range of food sources and support entire agricultural systems; the protection of ecosystems such as forests, watersheds, and coastal environments is a win-win for food security. Yet the contribution of ecosystems to food security and sustainable livelihoods, whether a single community’s rural subsistence or an entire country’s gross domestic product, is often undervalued or ignored. Similarly, functional ecosystem services represent the many and varied benefits that humans freely gain from the natural environment. They are integral to providing clean drinking water, the decomposition of wastes, and the natural pollination of crops and other plants.
