Richard Gunton, University of Winchester

This session explores ways in which different human values underpin natural capital conversations, and offers tools to help build such values into institutional cultures, governance structures and policy development. It looks at the values that are implicit or explicit in natural capital accounting, as well as the dangers of over-reliance on monetisation.

Introductions to tools and case studies from the Centre for the Evaluation of Complexity Across the Nexus (CECAN) research programme are followed by open-floor discussion about management practices, policy initiatives and governance systems that reflect the actual values of diverse stakeholder groups.
