On May 19, 2010, the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment hosted a salon on the Natural Capital Project's global research activities. Presentations focused on strategies for investing in nature, with case studies from South America, Hawai'i and China. There was also a presentation on Marine InVEST, a decision-making tool for mapping and valuing the many services provided by coastal and ocean ecosystems. This web page includes links to presentation videos from the Salon, slides from each speaker and background information on four project demonstration sites.

The Natural Capital Project is a joint venture among Stanford University, The Nature Conservancy and World Wildlife Fund. Detailed information can be found at the Natural Capital Project website.
