Ocean Decade Laboratories | A Healthy and Resilient Ocean ：”Ecosystem Services & Monitoring in Asia Pacific” (Asia Pacific Workshop on Healthy and Resilient Ocean focusing on Nature’s Contribution to People / Ecosystem Services and Ecosystem Monitoring)
The Asia-Pacific region is a region with a diverse relationship with the ocean. The region is a hotspot of biodiversity and cultural diversity, including the Coral Triangle area and island arc. However, research which integrative evaluation of ecosystems has not always been advanced. For this reason, it is essential to take a comprehensive approach to ecosystem assessment and human interaction.
