Treasury Guest Lecture “The Nature of Prosperity” by Dr Marie Brown
~~~~18 APRIL 2016 – TREASURY, THE TERRACE WELLINGTON
New Zealand’s indigenous biodiversity is at risk from political and economic drivers that make protecting nature difficult and costly, while damage is incentivised. The result of this is that nature continues to decline, in spite of some very good work being done throughout the country. Halting and reversing the decline of biodiversity will require strategic changes to align interests of all stakeholders in healthy functioning ecosystems. This presentation will set out the essence of our recent publications on biodiversity and propose some solutions leaving plenty of time for discussion and debate.
