On 31st August 2017 IDEEA Group in partnership with the Natural Capital Coalition (NCC) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants for England and Wales (ICAEW) hosted a workshop in London. It focused on how to bring closer together private and public sector developments in the measurement and assessment of natural capital.
A key input to the workshop was an IDEEA Group discussion paper on the potential to link the UN SEEA to the Natural Capital Protocol (NCP). Over 20 participants, all leaders in different parts of the natural capital space, exchanged perspectives on this issue and there was general agreement that progressing the dialogue in this area and exchanging practical experiences in measurement at different spatial scales is an important part of the pathway forward. We will let you know when the final statement is released at the upcoming World Forum on Natural Capital.
