What is the price of biodiversity? What’s the value you give to a clean environment against a degradated one? How much is the Amazonas worthed? The clean fresh water? The breathable air?
It all belongs to the commons. It is the gift Mother Nature has given us, but as human social structures become more and more complex, the commons are being taken over by international corporations that without giving a price to the commons are using them to the detriment of the population, in special to the detriment of the poor part of the world population.
Pavan Sukhdev, chairman of TEEB, put it in its own words : ‘You loose nature, you loose the chance of solving poverty’.
