Economist Runs Debate on Wild Nature

In response to an online debate run by the Economist, 91% of participants have concluded that ‘untouched wildernesses have a value beyond the resources and other utility that can be extracted from them’. The debate ran between 4th and 14th October, with speakers including Pavan Sukhdev, leader of the TEEB (the Economics of Ecosystem Services and Biodiversity) study.
