Third Forum on Natural Capital Accounting for Better Policy Decisions
Three important international initiatives each seek to create enabling environments for better decision-making, by mainstreaming considerations of natural capital. The Forum on Natural Capital Accounting (NCA) for Better Policy, the Government Dialogue on Natural Capital, and the Combining Forces Initiative have joined up to hold a combined meeting on 26 to 27 November 2018 in Paris during what has been called Natural Capital Week 2018 (Paris, France).
The Forum on Natural Capital Accounting (NCA) for Better Policy Decisions is a yearly forum providing countries, international agencies and interested stakeholders a space to discuss the use of the natural capital accounting to support policies. The 2017 Forum highlighted the need for building collaboration with the private sector, which is making rapid progress in natural capital accounting and complementary approaches.
The Government Dialogue on Natural Capital provides a platform for governments to explore, understand and strengthen the role of governments and their interaction with the private sector in up-scaling and mainstreaming natural capital approaches.
The Combining Forces Initiative focuses on building synergies between public and private approaches to natural capital with a view of generating trusted and credible information to inform decisions.
The Natural Capital Policy Forum will focus its discussion on how natural capital accounting and complementary approaches that can help in informing decisions, providing special insights on climate change and biodiversity.
The Natural Capital Policy Forum will be held from 26-27 November at the Palais Brongniart Room, Notre-Dame des Victoires, Place de la Bourse in Paris, France. A full agenda will be shared closer to the Forum.
