World Bank to lead economic push on nature protection

Date : 28th October 2010, Source : BBC Link to News Story

The World Bank has launched a global partnership aimed at helping countries include the costs of destroying nature into their national accounts.

The partnership was launched at the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) meeting in Nagoya, Japan.
