Making Nature’s Values Visible
The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) is a global initiative focused on drawing attention to the economic benefits of biodiversity including the growing cost of biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation. TEEB presents an approach that can help decision-makers recognize, demonstrate and capture the values of ecosystem services & biodiversity.
Since the launch of the TEEB reports various countries have initiated TEEB studies to demonstrate the value of their ecosystems and to encourage policy-making that recognizes and accounts for their ecosystem services and biodiversity.
Sector & Biome Studies
The sector and biome studies capture and assess the costs of biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation, with the ultimate goal of integrating these findings into decision-making at all levels.
