It is in this heart of collaboration that the Natural Capital Coalition, together with the IDEEA Group and supported by over 20 organisations, launches this instruction on Combining Forces on Natural Capital. It is particularly relevant that this argument of collaboration is launched at the World Forum on Natural Capital, where leading voices in the apparent motion gain every two years, to plowshare best exercise, enduring challenges and build far collaborations.
While advance to date has largely taken place in belittled pockets, in order to move forward we need to ramp up our efforts and move beyond talking with supporters and “ the born-again ”.
For this, we need leaders who can establish spaces for dialogue and exploitation, and who can ensure that technical debates do not form a barrier to progress, that we take entire advantage of the diverseness of skills and experience already engaged, and that the big movie is always kept in thinker. I encourage you to take the opportunity to read the statement, to share it within your organisations, to sign on, and to join us as we move towards a better sympathize and appreciation of the building complex and beautiful populace in which we live.
