This RFF First Wednesday Seminar will feature the release of a new report from the Breakthrough Institute, Nature Unbound: Decoupling for Conservation, and discuss several of its key themes: how humans destroy nature, how they save nature, and what this implies for conservation. Panelists will discuss the following questions:
- What has been learned from past instances of nature-sparing technological change?
- In which ways can technology complement other efforts to halt biodiversity loss, including protected areas and payments for ecosystem services?
- In looking further toward the future, can we assume the continued capacity to save nature by innovation?
- How can economists, conservationists, policymakers, and others contribute to accelerating positive trends while dealing with inevitable trade-offs?
- James W. Boyd, Senior Fellow and Director, Center for the Management of Ecological Wealth
- Linus Blomqvist, Director of Conservation, The Breakthrough Institute
- Jesse H. Ausubel, Director of the Program for the Human Environment, The Rockefeller University
- Thomas Lovejoy, Senior Fellow, United Nations Foundation; and University Professor, George Mason University
A light lunch will be provided starting at 12:30 p.m
Individuals can also register for the event as a webcast.
