Nurturing Natural Capital
May 17, 2023 | 10:35-10:45 GST
Speaker: Johnny Ayoub | IMEA Climate and Sustainability Lead, Oliver Wyman
Environmental and nature degradation have severe consequences, as over half of the world's economic output, valued at around US $44 trillion, relies on the environment. Extreme biodiversity loss, pollution, and overconsumption of natural resources are already affecting societal health, supply chain, and food security. Therefore, action and transparency regarding nature impact are essential.
The presentation will cover the Middle East region's unique challenges and opportunities in environmental capital, the benefits of nature-related disclosures, and ways for Middle East countries to protect their environmental capital while enabling private sector support for government policies.
