The Valuing Nature Programme in collaboration with UK Research and Innovation has held High-Level Sector Round Tables with three key sectors: infrastructure, land management and insurance / financial services.
The purpose of each Round Table was to:
- review current activity in each sector relating to measuring and valuing natural assets
- understand barriers and challenges to measuring and valuing natural assets in the sector
- identify knowledge gaps and research and innovation needs for the sector
A comprehensive series of reports reflecting the findings from the Round Table activity have been prepared. The reports are now published, together with the background papers prepared for each Round Table, and available to download:
A fourth report provides an overview of the findings of the three Round Tables, draws out cross-sector commonalities and differences, and proposes options to address the identified research and innovation needs. This report will be available shortly for download here:
