Summary: This Interim Report was the first publication in the influential TEEB study. It was released in 2008 at the 9th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the CBD in Bonn. With the Interim report, TEEB study leader Pavan Sukhdev presented a “comprehensive and convincing business model for the conservation of biological diversity”, which acted as a catalyst for the international demand for TEEB’s subsequent reports and Earthscan volumes aimed at international, national, local and regional policy makers and business.
