The Economics of Biodiversity

The Dasgupta review and the SANDEE connection

06 July 2021 | Zoom (Open to public)

18:00–20:00 (Nepal Standard Time)

The Economics of Biodiversity: The Dasgupta Review (2021) provides a rich overview of the economics of biodiversity, paints a bleak picture of the current state of biodiversity, and is a call to arms for action in anticipation of the CBD COP 15. The Review takes a global perspective aimed at the high level of international and national policy on biodiversity, while elucidating the very local nature of biodiversity threats and values. The central point of The Review is that the economy is embedded in the environment and growth is limited. The Review provides a new framework, grounded in ecology and Earth Sciences, yet applying the principles from finance and economics to understand the sustainability of our interaction with nature and prioritize efforts to enhance nature and prosperity.

On 6 July 2021, as part of the SANDEE-ICIMOD lecture series, Prof. Dasgupta will highlight different aspects of The Review in his keynote address and outline its relevance to the region.

This keynote is open to the public. If you would like to attend this lecture, please register here.
