"Using natural capital accounting by governments to value and embed nature in decision-making by business and finance"
The recent adoption of the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting – Ecosystem Accounting (SEEA AE) framework is a stepping stone to change the system. But, how these accounts on water, forest or biodiversity could be useful for the business and finance community? How can they inform actions to set targets and make sure nature is properly taken into account?
In the 13 April sessions, those essential topics will be discussed by experts from UNSD and a local government.
Bert Kroese - Chair of the UN Committee of Experts on Environmental-Economic/ Deputy Director General of CBS
Jessica Ying Chan – UN Statistics Division: Opportunities to accelerate change – introducing the UN-SEEA standard and roadmap
Dr. Sudeepta Ghosh - Joint Director of National Statistical Office India: country application to improve statistics and support sustainable decision-making
Johan Lammerant – Natural Capital and Biodiversity Expert at Arcadis: business consultation findings and need on natural capital data and data sources
The session marks the occasion with:
- The launch of the final version of the collaborative narrative “Natural Capital for Biodiversity Policies: why, what, why, and how” features more than 60 best examples globally.
- The launch of the new Government Dialogue Hub and coming activities. The hub is a collaborative platform, by and for the community. It aims to provide a safe space to exchange resources, events, and examples to shift paradigms, redefine value, and mainstream the adoption of Natural Capital in decision-making.
