Abstract: "Development is achieved through growing and managing the portfolio of assets available to a household or a nation. Soils, water, plants and animals often make up the biggest chunk of poor peoples assets. The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA) has taken stock of these environmental assets worldwide. It reveals that fully sixty percent are being degraded - with poor people disproportionately suffering the consequences such as shortage of clean water, floods and droughts. Yet the MA also identified instances of effective asset management - proven Response Options that deserve scaling up."
