Short extract:

Jacob Sal­cone, econ­o­mista de Recur­sos Nat­u­rales de la UICN en Oceanía, com­parte en el blog del Foro Mundial sobre el Cap­i­tal Nat­ural un intere­sante artículo en el que reflex­iona sobre las razones por las que las orga­ni­za­ciones con­ser­va­cionistas deberían tratar a la nat­u­raleza como cap­i­tal natural.

“Ecosys­tem ser­vice val­u­a­tion and nat­ural cap­i­tal account­ing are still mostly locked in the ivory tower, aca­d­e­m­i­cally mature but not yet main­streamed into national plan­ning and pol­icy mak­ing. Con­ser­va­tion organ­i­sa­tions need to part­ner with national plan­ners and even pri­vate sec­tor devel­op­ers and entre­pre­neurs to bring the nat­ural cap­i­tal ini­tia­tives into practice.”
