A series of three roundtables designed by the National Economic and Social Council (NESC) and supported by Natural Capital Ireland (NCI) enabled high-level policy dialogue on valuing nature in Ireland, including the potential of the natural capital approach and natural capital accounting in policy.
The roundtables were organised by the NESC as part of the project Accounting for Nature in Ireland. Natural Capital Ireland (NCI) were commissioned by NESC to provide a briefing paper in advance of the roundtables on valuing nature in Ireland; to attend each roundtable as independent rapporteurs to support the NESC Secretariat; and to provide a Rapporteurs’ Report after completion of the roundtables.
These high-level policy dialogues brought a wide range of policy makers, together with some experts and stakeholders, to discuss the potential and challenges of using the natural capital approach and natural capital accounting within the policy system in Ireland. NCI acted as independent rapporteurs for each roundtable to complement the NESC Secretariat.
