Solutions for sustaining natural capital

Presented by ANU College of Asia & the Pacific

On behalf of the National Australia Bank (NAB), The Australia National University (ANU), and the Economics of Land Degradation (ELD) Initiative, we would like to invite you to participate in the ‘Solutions for Sustaining Natural Capital’ workshop, taking place at Crawford School of Public Policy, ANU, Canberra.

This event is intended to bring together stakeholders from different backgrounds to co-create solutions to restore and sustain natural capital and ecosystem services. In this context, our aim is to jointly discuss the relationship between natural capital and financing. With international experts from around the world, we will discuss what can be done within our existing institutions and what new institutions would look like. It is intended to harness the wide and diverse breadth of knowledge from a variety of sectors and expertise collaboratively.

The day will consist of presentations and panels by world experts:
