IEEP at Nagoya Conference: TEEB Highlights Importance of Valuing Natural Capital

On 20 October, 2010 TEEB Synthesis report was presented at the global meeting of the Convention of Biological Diversity in Nagoya, Japan, where 193 countries have convened to commit to addressing biodiversity loss and encouraging synergies between biodiversity, climate, water, economic development and poverty.

Patrick ten Brink of the IEEP is a co-author of the report and makes four presentations at the meeting to help policy-makers in better valuing their natural capital.

“The TEEB Synthesis report needs to become a foundation stone in activities reversing global biodiversity loss, a crisis that is currently worse than climate change,” said Patrick ten Brink.
