Healthy ecosystems benefit our economic prosperity and social wellbeing and it’s important that decision-makers recognise the value of these benefits.
Environmental-economic accounting (EEA) is a way to inform development and conservation investments by tracking the extent and condition of ecosystem assets, the services provided by those assets, and the direct benefits to individuals and society. Associate Professor Jim Smart of Griffith University leads a new Hub project developing a set of environmental-economic accounts for Queensland’s Mitchell River catchment to help inform the evolving national EEA approach.
