The economics of ecosystems and biodiversity: mainstreaming the economics of nature: A synthesis of the approach, conclusions and recommendations of TEEB

United Nations Environment Programme (2010)

The aim of TEEB is to provide a bridge between the multi-disciplinary science of biodiversity and the arena of international and national policy as well as local government and business practices. The scope of TEEB is intentionally broad and it should therefore be seen as an inspiration and as an invitation for others to deepen its findings and to develop more context- specific recommendations. Ideally, TEEB will act as a catalyst to help accelerate the development of a new economy: one in which the values of natural capital, and the ecosystem services which this capital sup- plies, are fully reflected in the mainstream of public and private decision-making.
