From the publisher's announcement:
Our Human Planet summarizes the findings of the four working groups and serves as a reference guide to the four volumes in the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment series. It presents the key findings of each working group and meets the needs of policy-makers and other professionals.
The summary also provides an overview of the framework used by the assessment, and will serve as a guide for assessment, planning, and management for the future. It also gives the nonspecialist the means of navigating the detailed findings of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment.
The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment's work is overseen by a 45-member Board of Directors, co-chaired by Robert Watson, Chief Scientist and Senior Advisor for the Environment of the Environmentally and Socially Sustainable Development Network of the World Bank, and A.H. Zakri, director of the United Nations University's Institute of Advanced Studies. The Assessment Panel, which oversees the technical work of the MA, includes 13 of the world's leading social and natural scientists. It is co-chaired by Angela Cropper of the Cropper Foundation and Harold Mooney of Stanford University. Walter Reid is the director of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment.
