The Dasgupta Review, commissioned by the HM Treasury, assesses the economic benefits of biodiversity and the economic costs of biodiversity loss, and identifies actions which can protect and enhance both biodiversity and economic prosperity. Last year’s interim report described the economic thinking – the final report presents also options for change, including success stories that demonstrate what is possible.

In April 2020 we discussed science and evidence to support conservation and restoration, as well as sustainable consumption and efficient use of natural resource in two workshops with the review team. Now we have the opportunity to revisit the review and see what challenges the final report sets to the research and policy communities.

In her talk, Dr Ruth Waters from the review team summarises the main messages from this review. You will then have the opportunity to comment and ask questions. We are interested in hearing your thoughts on the research and implementation gaps, as well as the topics and questions that should be highlighted to the wider research and policy communities.
