Valuing the Environment 2016

Thursday 24th November 2016 9:00am - 4:00pm

Event Description

Natural Capital is the stock of all natural assets, including, soil, air, geology water and all living things. It provides humans with a wide range of services, often called ecosystem services, which make human life possible. Natural Capital accounting is a means of explicitly including information on the state of, and changes in, natural capital, in economic accounts.

Natural capital has rapidly gained traction as a tool to value environmental goods and services. The Natural Capital Committee has proposed a 25 year framework to protect and improve natural capital in the UK. With a water management focus, plus case studies from other sectors, this event provides the perfect opportunity for cross-sector learning.

This interdisciplinary event will bring together economists, social scientists and environmental scientists to discuss progress in the natural capital accounting and ecosystem services agenda.

Speakers and agenda to be published shortly.
