Investing in our ecological infrastructure

Society for Ecological Restoration

Publication Date:

A new economic approach that prioritizes investment in our ecological infrastructure is gaining increasing attention, giving real substance to that often vague and misleading phrase, the “Green Economy”. A critical first step is the development of legislative and regulatory frameworks as well as innovative governance mechanisms and other incentives to protect and restore our natural capital. This new approach to investment must also consider appropriate scale and time horizons so that the values of, and trade-offs between, ecosystem services are used wisely to inform decision-making in both the public and private sectors.
