A5: Workshop

Posted 17.11.17 by

Does a country need a natural capital policy to ensure the natural assets are accounted for and preserved? How will such a policy accelerate the adoption and acceptance of the concept? Will a policy avoid all the unintended consequences as nature gets valued? The IUCN membership called for a working group to be established to develop a Natural Capital Policy. A policy that allows all involved parties to focus on the converging points and constructively discuss the diverging ones.

This session will hear how some countries, at a policy level, are already tackling this issue by asking some tough questions. This is also an open invitation from IUCN to the participants to engage further in a multi-stakeholder dialogue in developing this policy.
