Publication of “The Economics of Biodiversity: The Dasgupta Review”

Volume 688: debated on Tuesday 2 February 2021

At spring statement 2019, the Government commissioned an independent, global review on the economics of biodiversity. Today, “The Economics of Biodiversity: The Dasgupta Review” has been published.

At the start of an important year for global action to tackle biodiversity loss and climate change, the Government thanks Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta for his independent review and welcomes its publication as a strong example of UK thought leadership on an important environmental issue with clear—but often overlooked—economic consequences. The Government will examine the review’s findings and respond formally in due course.

The review is published on, and a copy will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.
