Marta Santamaria & Mark Gough, Natural Capital Coalition

Many approaches to taking account of nature in the public and private sectors have been developed, and there is a substantial body of technical experience and expertise. However, the approaches are yet to have a significant influence on broader decision-making in business or government. One key challenge is that the various approaches have been developed quite independently, with little focus on integration or alignment.

The ‘Combining Forces’ program was established to bring together the public and private sectors’ thinking on natural capital. The objective of Combining Forces is to foster a greater mutual understanding of different approaches to the assessment of natural capital and to co-ordinate efforts to ensure that our relationship with nature is accounted for and included in decision-making.  Our aim in this session is to explore with delegates in a workshop format if this approach resonates with them; how they see the challenge; and how we can work together to evolve this project.


This session is scheduled for Day 2, 22 may 2019, 1pm-2.30pm.
