This webinar series aims to build awareness of the relevance and potential of a capitals approach for decision-making in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Eastern & Southern Africa.
The series will build on the outcomes and insights delivered through the online African Forum on Green Economy – Investing in Natural Capital for a Resilient Africa, organised by the Capitals Coalition, IUCN and partners, in 2020. This new series will feature and discuss practical examples, opportunities and tools for SMEs in Eastern & Southern Africa to include the value of natural capital and local communities in decision-making.
In this first of five webinars, we will introduce the common question this series aims to address: how can businesses in Eastern & Southern Africa better value nature, communities and people to improve their decision making?
This webinar will provide an overview of the developments since 2012 when The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) was launched through to the formation of the Capitals Coalition, and showcase the frameworks and tools that are applied from the corporate to SME level to transform decision-making through a capitals approach.
