This is a joint lecture with The Rockefeller Foundation Economic Council on Planetary Health at the Oxford Martin School

Governments, businesses and NGOs are developing new metrics and tools to value and measure social, environmental and economic change in the context of Sustainable Development Goals and planetary health. Current approaches face limitations in addressing temporal and spatial dimensions of natural capital value.

This talk will address emerging methodologies to measure natural capital and enable us to assess and measure ecological services and benefits more fully in economic analysis. The speakers will bring perspectives from the ecological science and economics.
