The motion Accounting for biodiversity: encompassing ecosystems, species and genetic diversity led by Conservation International and many partners seeks to support and facilitate further development and implementation of the System of Environmental Economic Accounting (SEEA). It encourages IUCN member countries to implement and further develop SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting and to further investigate how statistical and accounting approaches can more fully incorporate existing knowledge, and advances in biodiversity measurement. A blog about the motion has been posted at the Wealth Accounting and the Valuation of Ecosystem Services (WAVES) website – see this link
We encourage our ESP colleagues who are IUCN members to comment and express support to the motion during online discussion. The full motion can be accessed here and existing IUCN Members can log in to the Union Portal where they can access motions and provide comments.
