Valorisation of Biodiversity

The Valorisation of Biodiversity

The expert review ‘Valorisation of Biodiversity‘ (Inwertsetzung der Biodiversität) was jointly carried out by adelphi research (Berlin) and the ICCR Foundation (Vienna and Paris) on behalf of the German Bundestag – Office for Technology Assessment (Büro für Technikfolgen-Abschätzung beim Deutschen Bundestag – TAB). The topics addressed are the following:

  • The discourse on the valorisation of biodiversity and the Green Economy at the UN Rio+20 Conference;

  • The relevance of the economic assessment of the valorisation and protection of biodiversity, both in the international and the German national contexts and,

  • The role of the concept of ‘ecosystem services’ in this discourse.
