    Most people in the world today live in cities, with the proportion expected to continue to increase. Urban environments have profound impacts on residents’ health and well-being, in terms of air quality, water quality, temperature regulation, and other “ecosystem services” (nature’s contributions to people). This session will explore methods, approaches, and applications of measuring ecosystem services that contribute to human well-being in urban environments.
