*How Much is Our Forest Worth?*

A workshop in valuing natural capital led by GPI Atlantic Founder, Ron

Peggy’s Cove Rd.)

The workshop will be the beginning of an ongoing working group to respond
to Nova Scotia forestry policy changes and to work on meaningful case
studies for local change.

Dr. Ron Colman is founder of GPI Atlantic <http://www.gpiatlantic.org>, a
non-profit research group in Nova Scotia that, over 15 years, constructed
comprehensive measures of wellbeing and full-cost accounts called the
Genuine Progress Index and has worked in Bhutan for more than a decade on
its holistic measures of progress that integrate social, economic and
environmental objectives. We will be using GPI Atlantic’s work on valuing
natural capital, particularly the NS Forest Accounts and Forestry Headline
Indicators (http://www.gpiatlantic.org/publications/naturalcapital.htm).
