Inger Andersen, Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme, speaks to the implications of the Dasgupta Review on the Economics of Biodiversity, and how we can begin the journey to re-shape our economies, working with nature, not against it.

Even as we seek to overcome the global pandemic, humanity faces three planetary crisis that threaten our future - the climate crisis, the biodiversity crisis, and the pollution and waste crisis – driven by decades of relentless and unsustainable consumption and production.
In an important year for multilateral governance for the environment, Ms Andersen will address how the Dasgupta Review's findings can influence the finalisation of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, and open up financing for nature-based solutions, which must feature extensively in the updated and stretched Nationally Determined Contributions, to be submitted ahead of COP26 in Glasgow later this year. And finally, in this pivotal year, with countries making unprecedented investments to kick-start economies, and protect livelihoods, how can we use the Review’s findings to inform global efforts to “recover better” from the pandemic?
