This brief highlights the valuable insights gained from the experience of the People's Republic of China (PRC) in integrating natural capital valuation into its policy and investment decision-making processes.

The brief traces the progression of natural accounting practices in the PRC since 2004, with a particular emphasis on the introduction and implementation of the gross ecosystem product (GEP) concept. It delves into the GEP accounting process, offering insightful examples of its three key steps, and highlighting the resulting implications for the PRC. Drawing from these experiences, the brief presents recommendations and underscores the pivotal role of the Asian Development Bank in facilitating the wider adoption and expansion of natural capital accounting.
