Ecosystems, Biodiversity and Agri-business
On December 13, the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform and IUCN held a workshop on: Ecosystems & Biodiversity and Economic Implications for Agri-business.
During the event, participants identified opportunities to build on existing research and tools developed by IUCN and partners, such as The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB), the Ecosystem Service Review (ESR), and the Integrated Biodiversity Assessment Tool (IBAT). Discussions also focused on the need to develop concrete 'cases' of practical use of these approaches. Presentations and minutes of the workshop are available on the SAI website.
