About


We are a group of researchers and economists who want to redefine what nations regard as wealth: as the potential to create and sustain humanity's well-being.

 

Collaborating toward well-being

The inclusive wealth project aims to provide countries with a realistic understanding of their wealth, and their prospects for long-term sustainability.

We are a joint initiative of the United Nations University International Human Dimensions Programme (UNU-IHDP) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in collaboration with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
