Have the policies we implemented helped us reach towards definitions of sustainability?

We are starting to think about sustainability – but we need to know how much environment we have, and how it’s changing, to attempt to answer any of these questions.   For this assignment, select an assessment report chapter from the “Current States and Trends” of the Millenium Ecosystem Assessmentreport Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (millenniumassessment.org) from the list below: – Biodiversity – Freshwater Ecosystem Services – Food Ecosystem Services –

Timber, Fuel, and Fibre Ecosystem Services – Nutrient Cycling – Air Quality and Climate – Waste Processing and Detoxification – Regulation of Natural Hazards – Cultural and Amenity Services – Marine Systems – Coastal Systems – Inland Water Systems – Forest Systems  – Dryland Systems – Island Systems

– Mountain Systems – Polar Systems – Urban Systems – Cultivated Systems Read through your selected chapter. 1)  Craft, and post, a discussion thread regarding what you learned from the report.  You need not highlight every important or new insight from your selected report, rather, concentrate on: Overall trends or facts that you found most interesting/alarming/inspiring The indicator used to determine the level of MEA The root source that may be identified for the concern The role or value of the ecosystem service for humans (anthropocentric) Management efforts or policies.  Specifically, what policies (and any economic policies

?) are being used to manage the situation The implication for future generations (sustainability)

.  Does it meet any definitions?
