Unlike the climate change problem, natural capital has a big spatial dimension. Climate change is all about a small number of gases in the atmosphere and it does not matter where they are emitted. Natural capital comes at every level, and location matters. It includes the great global biodiversity hotspots, like the Amazon, and it includes everyone’s backyard and every park and garden. Everyone can therefore make a difference to natural capital in ways that they cannot to the climate change problem.
