It is clear that ecosystems (“our natural capital”) and the services they provide such as timber, fish, crops, livestock and CO2 sequestration, underpin our economies in a significant way. It is therefore vitally important to understand how changes in trends in the use and availability of natural resources can affect national economies and companies in the coming years.

Do finance and capital markets sufficiently account for risks associated with changes in ecosystems and the availability of natural resources? Are such factors reflected in the assessment of fixed income securities with medium- to long-term maturities or in corporate loans to agri-businesses operating in water-scarce areas?
