Millennium Ecosystem Assessment
Strengthening Capacity to Manage Ecosystems Sustainably for Human Well-Being

The Global Assessment


Guided by the Conceptual Framework, four Working Groups completed the scientific work of the Millennium Assessment. These Working Groups were co-chaired by natural and social scientists from developed and developing countries; these eight co-chairs and other experts comprise the Assessment Panel, chaired by Angela Cropper and Harold Mooney. In addition to the four working groups, the MA secretariat coordinates a set of Engagement and Outreach activities designed to ensure that the needs of the ‘users’ and stakeholders in the MA were reflected in the MA design and that the findings of the MA reach their intended audience.
