The Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MoSPI), Government of India in collaboration with the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), European Union and UN Environment is organising the Natural Capital Accounting and Valuation of Ecosystem Services (NCAVES) India Forum on 14th, 21st and 28th January 2021.
The Forum aims at integrating the concerns of sustainability and conserving the environment for future use while charting the course for economic development through a collaborative effort involving various stakeholders, including line Ministries, state governments, multilateral organizations and research institutions for compiling a complete suite of accounts.
Economic valuation of wetlands has received considerable attention in the past two decades in India, but efforts to link them to accounting frameworks have been limited. This remains an area of active and collaborative research.
Dr Ritesh Kumar, Director, Wetlands International South Asia will be speaking at the Forum on 28th January 2021 during the session focusing on achievements in natural capital accounting and valuation of wetland ecosystem services.
