In the Spring Statement, the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer announced:

"later this year, the UK government will launch a comprehensive global review of the link between biodiversity and economic growth to be led by Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta, Emeritus Professor of Economics at Cambridge."

Prof. Dasgupta is the Chair of the Management Board of the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk. The aim of the global review into the Economics of Biodiversity is to “explore ways to enhance the natural environment and deliver prosperity”. It is very welcome that the UK has taken a lead on the vital, yet neglected, global problem of biodiversity loss.
