At 2,640 meters, Bogotá, Colombia's capital, is home to more than eight million people who depend on the surrounding mountains for their water.

Here one finds the páramos, a stunning landscape that's part of a natural machine that has sustained Bogotá for centuries. This ecosystem is now threatened by mining, ranching, and large-scale agriculture, and millions could suffer if it is not conserved.

Join Sandra Bessudo, Colombia's High Environmental Advisor to the President, as she explains how this breathtakingly beautiful, but fragile machine works, and why it's crucial for Bogota to thrive. Along the way she both candidly, and with a touch of humor, explains why we need to rethink our approach to economics, to better value the services nature provides.
