Nature & the Economy: What the Dasgupta Review means for UK policymakers
This online event, hosted by the Environment APPG, will explore the findings of the Dasgupta Review on the Economics of Biodiversity. Offering a powerful illustration of the ways economies are embedded within nature, the Dasgupta Review raises vital questions about priorities for the alignment of economic decision-making with the long-neglected needs of the natural environment.
Professor Partha Dasgupta (Author of the Dasgupta Review, Frank Ramsay Professor Emeritus of Economics, University of Cambridge)
Rt. Hon Sajid Javid MP (Former Chancellor of the Exchequer, commissioned the Dasgupta Review)
Rt. Hon Anneliese Dodds MP (Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer)
Beccy Speight (Chief Executive, RSPB)
In this event, our panel of distinguished speakers will discuss the key takeaways from the Dasgupta Review and explore how these findings can be translated into ambitious, robust policy that ensures the protection and recovery of nature in the interest of health, wellbeing, and the UK economy.
