The Second Report on the state of Natural Capital in Italy

The Italian Minister for the Environment, Gian Luca Galletti, has sent the second edition of the Report on the State of Natural Capital in Italy – 2018 to the President of the Council of Ministers and the Minister of Economy.

In Italy, the value of ecosystem services associated with natural capital is significant.

For example, the economic value associated with the quality of habitats is € 13.5 billion, while the value of recreational ecosystem services (non-tourism) is around € 3 billion.

In this edition of the Report, new recommendations are proposed to ensure a significant contribution to the realization of the global goals set by the 2030 Agenda for sustainable growth, which Italy must continue to pursue for present and future generations.
