Making Nature Count
2 Mar 2021 -  Since the beginning of time, we have treated nature as a free and endless provider of services.
We hike in forests, swim in oceans and use its resources without a second thought.
But even if we don’t pay for these goods and services, their value is far from zero.
The United Nations Statistical Commission adopts a new framework which enables countries to go beyond GDP and finally make nature count.
The System of Environmental-Economic Accounting – Ecosystem Accounting (SEEA EA) will enable countries to measure their natural capital and understand the immense contributions of nature to our prosperity and the importance of protecting it.
