The Dasgupta Review: Supplementary Notes on Investment in Conservation and Restoration, Family Planning, and Reproductive Health
University of Cambridge
(Revised: 9 April 2021)
These supplementary notes to The Economics of Biodiversity: The Dasgupta Review (henceforth, Review) have been prompted by the virtual meetings I have had in recent weeks with colleagues in a wide range of institutions across the world. Their probings on the Review have been wide-ranging. I had anticipated that, for no two people read a text in the same way – their expectations differ. In the present case, the reader’s motivation for reading the Review matters. What the private citizen would like to find in it differs from what someone in a government department or an international agency or a private company seeks. I was aware of this diversity of demands when composing the Review. But the questions that have been put to me at the meetings have made me realize that there are themes that could be studied further usefully. This is what these notes are meant to do.
