The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity in National and International Policy Making: An Output of TEEB - The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity

United Nations Environment Programme (2011)

This book shows how and why existing prices, markets and policies fail to reflect the true value of ecosystem services and biodiversity, and the true cost of ongoing damage. It argues for urgent action and demonstrates the huge range of opportunities we already have to respond to the value of nature. Decision makers are given a roadmap to guide reform of policy frameworks at all levels, based on lessons learned and innovative solutions from around the world.
