Taking root. Mainstreaming natural capital accounting to meet global biodiversity goals.

Document Summary: 
The UN’s goal to halt and reverse biodiversity loss by 2030 is an ambitious target that looks increasingly unrealistic as the deadline approaches. Biodiversity is diminishing at an alarming pace, in the process exposing the world’s nature dependent global gross domestic product (GDP)—about 55% of the total—to disruption. It’s increasingly clear that the world needs new tools to sustainably manage environmental resources for the long term. This report presents a comprehensive overview of the integration of natural capital accounting to achieve the global biodiversity targets.
