Valuing Nature as a Driver for Restoration
Format: Interactive Panel and Q&A

Identifying how different approaches to valuing nature can complement and support each other to inform policy practice that is effective, fair and equitable
We all value nature, whether that’s in terms of appreciating landscape, birdsong or how it makes us feel. But do we capture those values enough to make a difference to decision-making for the economy, for development and for how we manage land and the oceans. Could we do better at capturing those values and could values play more of a role in driving ecosystem restoration? Whilst economic valuation has dominated discussion of valuing nature, there are other types of values that could be taken into consideration, such as benefits to wellbeing and spiritual values. This session will introduce some of the thinking about the range of values that are seen as relevant, what’s being done by governments, business and within communities to capture those values, and how valuing nature is contributing to better decision-making and healthier ecosystems.
