"Market-based instruments for biodiversity: Nature at any cost?"

17 boulevard Jourdan
75014 Paris 08th of June 2011

A session of the IDDRI - Fondation d'entreprise Hermès


Théâtre de la Cité internationale, espace Adenauer, 17 boulevard Jourdan, 75014


Presentation :

In order to investigate the development of MBIs for biodiversity and ecosystem services, the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès and IDDRI are convening an international conference that will address the following issues:

- Clarifying the concept of MBI and its underlying assumptions, in a context where the terminology and definition remain imprecise and unstable and the links with economic theory insufficiently explicit;
- Presenting the landscape of MBIs that are designed for and applied to the conservation of biodiversity and the provision of ecosystem services at various geographical scales;
- Studying the efficiency of MBIs as modes of intervention, their legitimacy with respect to public policy principles, and their equity implications;
- Investigating and analysing the incorporation of MBIs into public policies, challenging the assumption that these instruments move decisions and financing from public to private hands;
- Discussing recent controversial MBIs to determine the associated risks in the short-and medium-terms and their prospects in the longer term;
- Concluding on possible scenarios for the future.
