Experts agree ecosystem accounting agenda

Economic and environmental experts commit to stronger international cooperation

European and international economics and environmental experts have agreed to cooperate to develop land and ecosystem accounting as a tool to help make land management decisions more sustainable.  "The accounting framework will eventually allow us to connect the natural system to the economic system", explains European environment agency official Ronan Uhel.  The EEA hosted a workshop on the subject on 30 November and 1 December.  To coincide with the meeting it released a report on land accounts for Europe between 1990 and 2000 plus a progress report on its work on ecosystem accounting.  See press release.
