Abstract

The 2005 Millennium Ecosystem Assessment1 suggested that while there have been substantial gains in human wellbeing in recent decades, these have been achieved at the expense of high, often irreversible levels of ecosystem degradation. The linkages between ecosystem services and poverty alleviation, however, are complex and poorly understood. In many cases, gains in well-being have gone hand-in-hand with rising inequalities and increasing vulnerability of the more marginalised to environmental shocks and stresses. The Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA, https://www.espa.ac.uk/) interdisciplinary research programme aimed to work towards the Sustainable Development Goals2 by giving decision-makers and natural resource users the evidence they need to address the challenges of combining sustainable ecosystem management with poverty reduction.
