Nearly all types of natural capital—the world’s stock of resources provided by nature—are in decline. The ecosystem services that flow from those natural capital assets – such as fertile soils for crops, rich ocean life supporting tourism and productive fisheries, and dense forests for carbon capture – are necessary for life on Earth.
Recognizing the essential services provided by natural capital, Nature’s Frontiers: Achieving Sustainability, Efficiency, and Prosperity with Natural Capital, a joint report from the Natural Capital Project and the World Bank, proposes a novel approach to address these foundational challenges of sustainability. A methodology combining innovative science, new data sources, and cutting-edge biophysical and economic models builds sustainable resource efficiency frontiers to assess how countries can sustainably use their natural capital in more efficient ways. The analysis provides recommendations on how countries can better utilize their natural capital to achieve their economic and environmental goals.
Join us for a presentation from the authors and a panel discussion on the country-level applications of this work.
