The fifth annual WAVES partnership meeting will bring together WAVES countries, UN agencies, donors, CSOs and other institutions supporting Natural Capital Accounting (NCA). The meeting will showcase results from WAVES countries that have made significant progress in constructing water, forest, minerals and ecosystem accounts and are using them to inform their policies. The Policy and Technical Experts Committee will present newly-designed extensive training modules on ecosystem accounts. 
The meeting offers a chance to share successes and challenges as NCA becomes a reality for several partner countries. We will also hear from theprivate sector on synergies with NCA, and feature panel discussions on how NCA supports wider development goals.
