  • Ecosystem Service Indicators DatabaseThe Ecosystem Service Indicators Database (ESID) was created by the World Resources Institute to make ecosystem service metrics and indicators readily available for use in policy dialogs and decisions, in ecosystem assessments, and in natural resource management decisions.
    ESID is an online searchable database where users can find—and contribute—indicators that have been used to apply ecosystem services approaches or hold promise for doing so. Indicator descriptions and other supporting information about how the indicator has been or could be applied are also provided.
  • Millennium Ecosystem Assessment: The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment assessed the consequences of ecosystem change for human well-being. From 2001 to 2005, the MA involved the work of more than 1,360 experts worldwide. Their findings provide a state-of-the-art scientific appraisal of the condition and trends in the world’s ecosystems and the services they provide, as well as the scientific basis for action to conserve and use them sustainably.
  • Ecosystem Services Partnership: The ES-Partnership aims to enhance communication, coordination and cooperation, and to build a strong network of individuals and organizations. ES-Partnership enhances and encourages a diversity of approaches, while reducing unnecessary duplication of effort in the conceptualization and application of ecosystem services. By raising the profile of ecosystem services and promoting better practice, the ES-Partnership will also increase opportunities for financial support and help focus the funding of individual organizations for more efficient utilization of existing funds.
