1. Researchers looked at the role of ecosystem services in the region of Oceania to address the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 3: Health and Wellbeing for All.
2. They found that cultural ecosystem services have a significant impact on mental and socio-cultural health.
3. Research such as the WISHFiji project and the development of a consolidated platform to provide exchange and dialogue, and the development of policy, investment, and action that recognizes ecosystem health co-benefits should be strongly supported.
