There are a huge number of the future generations that do not have jobs or sufficient income. We ought to be providing sufficient investments to provide them with jobs to fix all of the problems we have made and created.

Whether thru green bonds or central banks creating new money or from changing tax policies, we need to finance this 25 year plan beginning now to make the transition needed to create a fully sustainable world and make the transformation ASAP

Hi, I am Aldo Femia, Italian Office of Statistics, UNCEEA and Italian NCC member. Will anyone ever explain in occasions such as the present one why did Nature/Ecosystems become Natural Capital, what the specific metrics of Nature as Capital are and what does this semantic shift imply in policy terms? I am sure that would be enlightening! By the way, did Bert clarify that the monetary valuation part of the SEEA EA is NOT a statistical standard and why? Check out https://preprints.arphahub.com/article/84863/download/pdf and https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_WOx8S4IXXYZxVhp81EItmGfdMaNbHSk/view?usp=sharing for some clarification!

Given that the US is now documenting natural capital accounts perhaps it/the Biden Admin could agree to develop a national sustainability plan and then do a VNR on progress needed and being made to achieve it.

Great to see new ambition from governments on NCA adoption - including the US.At the green economy coalition we crowdsource public assessments of natural capital adoption on the Green Economy Trackerhttps://greeneconomytracker.org/policies/natural-capital-accounts
Chris Hopkins
01:15:49
Will the presentations be made available after the webinar? We'd love to add to our US data - we've just updated our South Africa NCA data.https://greeneconomytracker.org/country/south-africa

I highly recommend SANBI's Satellite Account for Biodiversity Economy. It frames the economic aspects of so-called natural capital very effectively!

One of the main recommendations from civil society for the UNEP+50 Declaration and the R73/333 process was to develop a Global Framework for strengthening national and international environmental legislation and law including targets, indicators, follo up and review processes and integrated holistic implementation plans, etc. Such a Global Framework should be based in part on and report on progress being made in regards to NCA.

Dieter Helm said we are living in a Keynesian world. I agree that the emphaysis on flows and short-run is a major cause of environmental disruption, but I also would like to acknowledge Sir J.M.Keynes for writing about the economic prospects of our grandchildren and for fightig (at Bretton Woods) for a more equitable (not dollar-centred) world economy, which would have helped preventing global Nature's overexploitation!
