IEEP presents The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) in Stromstad, Oslo, Paris and Rome 

The urgency of addressing the continued loss of ecosystems and biodiversity is being increasingly translated into economic terms and there is also increasing clarity on the needs for policy response and what form that could take.
