This study evaluates the economic efficiency of the Uganda project using a Cost-Benefit Analysis to compare implementation costs with observed and future benefits.

At the nexus of sustainable development, human rights, climate action, and nature conservation, Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) recognises the symbiotic connections between people and ecosystems.

The values assessment is a ‘methodological assessment regarding the diverse conceptualizations of the multiple values of nature and its benefits, including biodiversity and ecosystem services’ as set out in IPBES/6/INF/9.

This volume aims to widen the discussion about the diversity of human-nature relationships and valuation methods and to stimulate new perspective that are needed to build a more sustainable future, especially in face of ongoing socio-environmental changes.

India scored the lowest among 180 countries in this 2022 Environment Performance Index (EPI), an analysis by researchers of Yale and Columbia University which provides a data-driven summary of the state of sustainability around the world.

The State of the World’s Forests 2022 explores the potential of three forest pathways - halting deforestation and maintaining forests; restoring degraded lands and expanding agroforestry; and sustainably using forests and building green value chains - for achieving green recovery and tackling environmental crises, including climate change and biodiversity loss

Understanding the place of humans – including investor communities – in nature is largely informed by the dissociated relationship between the market price and the value of ecosystem goods and services in economic and financial systems.
