Rewrite 'The Ecosystem Approach'
Can you rewrite this so that a non-scientist can understand it? It is from the Introduction to the article on 'The Ecosystem Approach' by the Convention on Biological Diversity.
The ecosystem approach is a strategy for the integrated management of land, water and living resources that promotes conservation and sustainable use in an equitable way. Application of the ecosystem approach will help to reach a balance of the three objectives of the Convention. It is based on the application of appropriate scientific methodologies focused on levels of biological organization which encompass the essential processes, functions and interactions among organisms and their environment. It recognizes that humans, with their cultural diversity, are an integral component of ecosystems.
