Working paper explores what natural capital markets need from government

27th April 2023

This working paper explores what role governments should play in shaping and enabling natural capital markets to achieve substantial and speedy action towards climate goals and nature recovery – and shows that the UK government is missing an opportunity for global leadership by failing to make natural markets appealing to farmers.

It accompanies the report, Natural Capital Markets: what farmers and policy makers need to know, seeks to understand how new and emerging markets in natural capital fit into a changing landscape for farmers.
