Bringing Nature into Decision-Making

There is a dramatic and ongoing decline of the natural world according to a wide range of metrics. A widespread diagnosis of this predicament is that the value and importance of the natural world is not sufficiently accounted for in economic or other decision-making processes, and that bringing nature into decision-making provides the potential for a systemic solution to this challenge. How exactly this can be achieved at scale and across sectors remains a major challenge. However, there has been substantial progress in developing successful demonstrations of integrating nature into decision-making in a variety of sectors and regions. This theme issue examines some of the challenges and solutions for bringing nature into decision-making at scale, highlighting successful case studies in a variety of sectors.
