Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (Taken Question)

Question:   What is our reaction to the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment?

Answer:   The U.S. Government does not take any official position on the document.

Technical experts, including many who work for the U.S. Government, have been involved in the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment since its inception. The United States continues to work hard at home and abroad through a wide range of initiatives that protect our natural resources and biodiversity, and promote sustainable development globally.

Following up on the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development, the United States continues to lead a robust set of initiatives on health, water, tropical forests, energy and wildlife conservation to improve peoplesí lives today while preserving the environment for future generations.
