Earlier today in Oxford, Earthwatch Institute, Rio Tinto and SustainAbility sponsored a lecture from Pavan Sukhdev, Study Leader of TEEB. Pavan presented the latest TEEB report and raised the questions:
"Can economics really save wild nature? Can wild nature save the economy?"
He mentioned that 40 out of 75 Council Groups earlier this month at Davos were directly connected to biodiversity and ecosystems loss or loss of natural capital . I found the report ground breaking and would like to know your thoughts about it and what would it take for us to apply the economics Pavan Sukhdev and TEBB are promoting.
