Lets Invest In Nature

11 August 2017 / By Ritu Bhardwaj

Project Description

In a first of its kind study in India, the Indo German Biodiversity Programme studies 14 biodiversity hotspots in India to assess the economic value of services provided by various ecosystems and the opportunity cost of ignoring them. The research study was conducted under the TEEB-India Initiative. The findings of the case studies were transformed into 14 short animated videos which aim to engage people around the true economic value of biodiversity.
