This resource discusses the economic dimensions of ecological restoration and its importance in protecting and enhancing the natural capital. Through a series of case studies, the resource illustrates both the far-reaching economic impact that effective restoration programs can have and the fundamental need to properly account for nature’s goods and services within all decision-making processes governing the world’s economic activities.
