COVID-19, climate change, nature loss and rising levels of inequality are fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision-making.
Increasingly, actors around the world recognize that all of these issues are fundamentally interconnected, and that an integrated approach to address them is essential if we are to realize societal goals.
An integrated capitals approach provides governments with the information needed to deliver a green recovery, and illuminates the areas where a single smart intervention or policy can provide cost-free co-benefits for nature, people, communities and economies.
