Teeb 2010 synthesis report

Aichi Target 2 is the integration of biodiversity values into strategies for development and poverty reduction, planning processes and national accounting. This basically means making profits for those prepared to develop and trade new financial instruments and fund financial initiatives which will trade biodiversity and ecosystem assets as new financial assets. This promotes sectors regarded as necessary for a green economy such as: agriculture, buildings, cities, fishery, forests, industry, renewable energy , transport, tourism, waste management , and water as well as the enabling conditions in finance, domestic and international policy architecture. Inspired by the growing global focus on natural capital accounting, the note identifies the ongoing challenges related to the development of natural capital accounting and water quality accounting, in order to encourage debate and commitment towards effective water and biodiversity policy. The report aims to provide an inspiring starting point for thinking local policy in a new way. It examines how ecosystems and their associated services are likely to respond to particular policy actions. Green economy initiative[ edit ] The UNEP's green economy initiative is a project designed to communicate that the greening of economies is not a burden on growth but rather a new engine for growth, employment, and the reduction of persistent global poverty. This information will focus on improving our understanding of the economic costs of biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation.

It makes the case for systematic appraisal of the economic contribution of biodiversity and ecosystem services to human well-being; and for routine steps to prevent that contribution being lost or diminished through neglect or mismanagement. The Update also underlines a 'Coral Reef Emergency' that is already here as a result of the current build-up of greenhouse gases.

It makes the case for systematic appraisal of the economic contribution of biodiversity and ecosystem services to human well-being; and for routine steps to prevent that contribution being lost or diminished through neglect or mismanagement. This report shows how businesses can align their actions in relation to biodiversity and ecosystem services with other corporate responsibility initiatives, including community engagement and poverty reduction. This in turn not only impacts human well-being, but also seriously undermines the sustainability of the economic system. Inspired by the growing global focus on natural capital accounting, the note identifies the ongoing challenges related to the development of natural capital accounting and water quality accounting, in order to encourage debate and commitment towards effective water and biodiversity policy. TEEB finds that investing in ecosystem-based measures such as financing Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation REDD can thus assist in combating climate change and can also be a key anti-poverty and adaptation measure. This is linked with rising temperatures and ocean acidification. The green economy report, published in February , used economic analysis and modelling approaches to provide an in-depth assessment of identified economic sectors where "greening" might lead to prosperity and job creation i. It outlines the various steps that may be taken to initiate and implement a country study, communicate its findings, and implement the recommendations of the study.

Enable easy access to leading information and tools for improved biodiversity practice for the business community—from the perspective of managing risks, addressing opportunities, and measuring impacts.

It examines how ecosystems and their associated services are likely to respond to particular policy actions. The Manual discusses the origin of the database; describes its content and structure; outlines its contents and discusses how it may be used including important caveats.

Examine the economic costs of biodiversity decline and the costs and benefits of actions to reduce these losses. Human preferences may be a good guide to choosing ice cream flavors but not the mix of species or gases in the atmosphere necessary to sustain life.

Such systems can help policy makers adopt the right measures and design appropriate financing mechanisms for conservation. They are predominantly public goods with limited or no markets and do not command any price in the conventional economic system, so their loss is often not detected and continues unaddressed and unabated. Criticism[ edit ] The approach to valuing ecosystems encapsulated by the TEEB project has been criticized and is open to the same problems as affect all mainstream economic value theories. The Update also underlines a 'Coral Reef Emergency' that is already here as a result of the current build-up of greenhouse gases. The report cites a study in south Thailand on the conversion of mangroves into shrimp farms. Examine the economic costs of biodiversity decline and the costs and benefits of actions to reduce these losses. Read more Nature and its Role in the Transition to a Green Economy October — This TEEB discussion paper looks at how Nature and Natural Capital contribute to a green economy, both in terms of the benefits provide to society by maintaining nature as well as the losses avoided by conserving and rehabilitating natural capital. Aichi Target 2 is the integration of biodiversity values into strategies for development and poverty reduction, planning processes and national accounting. This promotes sectors regarded as necessary for a green economy such as: agriculture, buildings, cities, fishery, forests, industry, renewable energy , transport, tourism, waste management , and water as well as the enabling conditions in finance, domestic and international policy architecture. This in turn not only impacts human well-being, but also seriously undermines the sustainability of the economic system. This is seen by some as the hidden agenda of TEEB as it has been backed by financial interests including being headed by a former Deutsche Bank financier. The findings of TEEB Interim Report were largely in three areas—the economic size and welfare impact of losses of ecosystems and biodiversity, the strong links between biodiversity conservation and ecosystem health on the one hand and poverty elimination and the achievement of Millennium Development Goals on the other, and the ethical choices involved in selecting a social discount rate for discounting the benefits of ecosystems and biodiversity. TEEB recommends that national accounting systems need to be more inclusive in order to measure the significant human welfare benefits that ecosystems and biodiversity provide.

TEEB recommends that urgent remedial action is essential because species loss and ecosystem degradation are inextricably linked to human well-being.
