The economics of conservation – World Science Festival Brisbane

The economics of conservation – What price nature?

The past two decades have seen increasing emphasis on the economic benefits of conservation and biodiversity, attributing value to environmental goods as natural capital: discussions about ecology on the one hand and conservation on the other are increasingly couched in dollar terms.

When: 6–8 pm,Thursday 21 March
