Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment

The services of ecological systems and the natural capital stocks that produce them represent a considerable share of the total value of the planet. Because these services are not fully captured in markets, they are often given too little weight in policy decisions and this neglect may threaten the sustainability of humans in the biosphere.

This seminar series will synthesize the large (but scattered) existing information about the value of ecosystem services and natural capital and present it in a form useful for ecologists, economists, policy makers, and the general public. It will also be helpful in valuing natural capital in 'green' national accounting systems which are currently being proposed in many countries.

Open to all.

Convenors: Prof Dieter Helm, Prof Cameron Hepburn, Prof Robert Hahn
