The Dasgupta Review: Supplementary Notes on Investment in Conservation and Restoration, Family Planning, and Reproductive Health

National Institute Economic Review

Vol. 256 pp. 162-177 (2021)

Abstract: Three broad categories of transformative changes have been recommended in The Economics of Biodiversity: The Dasgupta Review (henceforth Review): (i) The need to address the imbalance between our demands on Nature and its supply. (ii) The need to change our measures of economic success. (iii) The need for institutional change. However, what the private citizen would like to find in the Review differs from what someone in a government department or an international agency or a private company seeks. These notes have been prompted by the many virtual meetings I have had since the Review’s launch and they further explore aspects of the Review’s recommendations.
