Putting a price on the environment is not about commodifying the Earth and valuing natural resources is not about creating simple cost-benefit models for the entire world. Valuing natural resources is about counteracting the economic invisibility of nature. An invisibility that leads to poor policies and treaties. These were some of the messages from Pavan Sukhdev, previous Head of UNEP’s Green Economy Initiative, when he attended a seminar on May 9th that was arranged by Global Challenge and Stockholm Environment Institute.
