The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment is intended as a reference manual for local/regional/national assessments that will carry on the work of the MA into the future. It focuses both on findings of the current subglobal assessment groups, as well as offering a framework, guidance, and lessons learned for future efforts. The idea is that it will help to establish common metrics by which our progress, or regression, can be measured over time.
