We Value Nature is currently carrying out together with Ecoacsa a pilot project to strengthen collaboration between the public and private sector through assessing the options, benefits and best practices of restoring degraded land in a specific ecosystem in the Mediterranean area, Cabo de Gata-Níjar (Andalusia, Spain), by reinforcing the integration of natural capital in decision-making processes.
The project is currently calling for case studies for ecotourism, eco-agriculture, agroforestry and ecosystem restoration projects that have implemented natural capital and ecosystem services approaches. A selection of projects will be profiled as best practices of the different natural capital approaches that can benefit local stakeholders from public and private sectors and society.
The selected projects must have been carried out in similar ecoregions or in the proximity to the pilot area facing similar ecosystem related challenges as Cabo de Gata-Níjar (click on the following link for further details ).
About the project
We Value Nature is an EU Horizon 2020-funded three-year campaign (November 2018 – October 2021) supporting businesses and the natural capital community across Europe with the aim of making valuing nature the new normal for business. The campaign is reinforcing and boosting the work of the Capitals Coalition, helping businesses make smarter decisions that benefit themselves, society and planet as a whole.
The consortium supporting the We Value Nature campaign is led by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), which incorporates the Capitals Coalition (NCC). The other consortium partners are the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and Oppla.
