Abstract Many international studies and initiatives have contributed to mainstreaming Natural Capital Valuation (NCV) in scientific and political advice. However, NCV is neither a clear-cut concept, nor does its application meet unconditional enthusiasm. The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the debate on NCV, sharpen its understanding, and provide recommendations for applying the concept and related instruments for environmental policy and practice. It seeks to clarify for which specific purposes and under what conditions it may be useful. It synthesizes various debates, initiatives, and practical experiences in different policy areas and economic sectors about NCV. We seek answers to questions such as: How can NCV inform international environmental cooperation? Can it support biodiversity policy and implementation? Can it strengthen protected areas?
