The Dasgupta Review is an independent, global review on the economics of biodiversity led by world-renowned economist Partha Dasgupta. Commissioned by the UK Treasury in 2019, the Review is expected to help set the agenda for the UK Government’s 25-year environment plan and was prompted by a growing body of evidence that in recent decades humanity has been degrading our most precious asset, nature, at rates far greater than ever before. At the heart of the problem, according to the Review, lies deep-rooted, widespread institutional failure.

Join the lead author Partha Dasgupta in-conversation with Hetan Shah as he discusses how our economies are embedded within nature, why we need to change how we think, act and measure success, and what role the discipline of economics can play in sustaining biodiversity.
