Maintaining Ecosystem Services in Oceania

Maintaining Ecosystem Services in Oceania


1. Researchers looked at the role of ecosystem services in the region of Oceania to address the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 3: Health and Wellbeing for All.
2. They found that cultural ecosystem services have a significant impact on mental and socio-cultural health.
3. Research such as the WISHFiji project and the development of a consolidated platform to provide exchange and dialogue, and the development of policy, investment, and action that recognizes ecosystem health co-benefits should be strongly supported.
