Natural capital accounting—a tool being used in dozens of countries globally and by the private sector—tracks changes in ecosystem services and directly ties these changes to costs and benefits across different economic sectors. In this National Ecosystem Services Partnership webinar, Ken Bagstad and Carl Shapiro of the U.S. Geological Survey will describe ongoing work to develop the infrastructure for a national natural capital accounting system in the United States.
