The launch of the platform follows up the meeting in March 2017 in Brisbane of 28 representatives from different agencies from the Pacific region. The workshop was organised by GDN in association with development partners such as Wealth Accounting and the Valuation of Ecosystem Services Global Partnership (WAVES) and with input from United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN-ESCAP) – Pacific Office. The platform was developed by GDN, with support from a specialised consultancy, IdeasBelong.
