How can we re­think the eco­no­mic pa­ra­digm that re­cognis­es bio­di­ver­si­ty as the foun­da­ti­on of (eco­no­mic) su­staina­bi­li­ty, hu­man well-being and pro­spe­ri­ty? How can the va­lue of bio­di­ver­si­ty be re­flec­ted in eco­no­mic terms and what are new fi­nan­ci­al tools avail­able to pro­tect bio­di­ver­si­ty?
