Abstract

Protecting and restoring natural capital—Earth’s lands, waters, and biodiversity, and the life-supporting goods and services that flow from these—have been promoted by many as the best hope for conserving biodiversity while also supporting sustainable, inclusive growth. Evidence is growing that illuminating the ways in which people depend on nature for their well-being can motivate efforts that improve both (Guerry et al. 2015; chapter  4, this volume). Creative yet highly dispersed innovation has shown glimpses of what is possible.
