Furthermore, it explores how to manage ecosystems for a variety of ecosystem services such as provisioning of water and food, and how to manage ecosystems in a sustainable way so they can substantially contribute to enhancing current and future food security and generate regulatory services such as the moderation of extreme events such as floods, droughts and storms, climate regulation and erosion prevention.
