How do we incentivize the private sector to value nature? Why have we not yet succeeded in introducing a measure of inclusive wealth as an alternative to the GDP? How good are economists at incorporating tipping points into future assessments?

Our guest panelists will bring their expertise and experiences working in academia, policy and practice to dig deeper into some of these questions. Taking the Dasgupta review as inspiration, the trans-disciplinary panel debate aims to spark reflections on how to tackle complex biodiversity challenges, and to discuss the implications of the report’s key takeaways for changing both the policy agenda and the “standard economic thinking”.
