Designing a Research and Practice Network for Natural Capital and Environment Accounting in the Pacific
27 March 2017
The Global Development Network, in collaboration with WAVES and other development partners, is hosting a workshop as part of the Oceania Ecosystem Services Forum (27-31 March 2017, Brisbane) to address the opportunities and challenges related to the production and use of environment and natural capital accounts in the Pacific region, and discuss the value proposition of a research and practice network to catalyze efforts on the topic. The workshop departs from the premise that the production and use of the accounts, rather than two parallel tracks, are two deeply intertwined activities, and that countries in the region can benefit greatly from sharing experiences.
