New international forum on biodiversity offsets
Last year I participated in a unique international workshop in Berlin on "Challenging futures of biodiversity offsets and banking". About 30 people from governments, corporates and NGOs talked about voluntary and regulated offset schemes in Europe, the USA and Africa. I was pleased to showcase how Australia was trialling carbon and biodiversity offsets.
If you’re interested in biodiversity offsets Marianne Darbi, based in Dresden, Germany has started a Biodiversity Offsets Blog, a platform for information and exchange on biodiversity offsets and the mitigation hierarchy. Its available here.
The blog is based on Marianne's PhD research and experience, and she's hoping the insights she’ll gain from it will feed into her dissertation. She invites posts, reviews, photographs, comment and discussion. Subscribe here
