20 June, Rio+20: Natural Capital Dialogue
When: 1 – 2.30 pm on 20 June 2012
Where: RioCentro (room T-4, capacity 216), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The Natural Capital Declaration convenors are co-organising the Natural Capital Dialogue, an on-site side event on 20 June at the Rio+20 conference.
The event is being organised by the government of the United Kingdom (lead) with the World Bank Group and Natural Capital Declaration (UNEP FI, Global Canopy Programme and FGV).
Countries, governments or businesses cannot deliver sustainability alone. Managing our transition to a green economy requires all parties to act together, internationally, across the public and private sectors and civil society.
Focusing on the role of natural capital, and building on the shared recognition that we use nature because it is valuable, but lose nature because it is free, this event will bring together a range of initiatives at different levels to demonstrate specific approaches to meeting their common goal of improving how we account for the value of nature in decisions. Governments, financiers and businesses will show why we need to go “beyond GDP” and mainstream financial accounting to understand the real progress of our countries and companies. They will highlight the role of natural capital in delivering economic prosperity and human well-being and commit to working together to create the conditions necessary to sustainably manage natural capital stocks.
