Nature-related risk in the public-private continuum

LSE (February 2022)

Where does a disaster- or climate-related risk end, and a nature-related risk start? Do they exist in a continuum, or should they be considered as distinct but interrelated? These questions are important for concerted action to combat the risks emanating from the natural world. Manleen Dugal, Martha McPherson, and Ria Sen write that international collaboration on a global reporting framework is underway. Without it, companies can’t justify prioritising nature-related risk, and policymakers will find it difficult to allocate budget to this unproven new area.
