NATURAL CAPITAL & ENVIRONMENTAL ECONOMICS

“Whiskey is for drinking; water is for fighting over.”

 Mark Twain

 

The introduction of the concept of natural capital in the fight against climate change constitutes a new and interesting approach, through the analysis of the relationship (risks, interactions and synergies) between the environmental services and the climate change impacts.

Our goal is to contribute to the construction of a global scenario where measuring and valuing the environment (assets and services) could improve and reinforce decisions related to sustainable development in general and to climate change in particular .

We document the extent and condition of natural capital assets, ecosystem service flows and their value, through the implementation of robust frameworks for natural capital and ecosystem accounting.

This way the organizations can have an exact approach to the extent and value of private and public benefits, and ensures the quantity and quality of assets that can be managed.
