Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung have just updated their dossier New Economy of Nature!
‘Offsetting is better than doing nothing at all.’
‘Prices must tell the ecological truth.’
These and other popular arguments for an economic valuation of nature are critiqually questioned in our dossier New Economy of Nature. Ten contrasting points illustrate where these common assumptions fall short or where they are just false.
Also NEW in our dossier:
- A glossary with key terms
- An article on UN institutions breaking the ground for a new economy of nature
- New entries to our interactive world map
Our dossier illustrates what the concept of the ‘New Economy of Nature’ stands for and why this approach has been of increased interest to economy and politics. We name key actors and institutions that are shaping the discourse and highlight contradictions as well as disputable assumptions.
