A positive manifesto for regenerating our planet through the power of natural capital.
We are on the brink of catastrophe and cutting emissions alone won't be enough. There is a second crisis happening in our ecosystems. To tackle it, we should recognise that the natural world is not only priceless, but has measurable economic value. Restoring biodiversity aided by technological and financial innovation will unlock environmental protections and economic benefits.
The Case for Nature sets out with powerful clarity how protecting nature is both the right thing to do, and in our economic interests; how, taking a cue from a range of indigenous worldviews, nature must be woven into our modern societies, not set apart. Siddarth Shrikanth introduces the pioneers of the nature-positive revolution, and gives us the tools to understand how we can work with, not against, our living planet.
