Biodiversity offsets: the conservation debate

The debate around biodiversity offsets as a potential conservation tool is involving a wide variety of stakeholders, from conservation organizations, academia, business, and governments. Despite several international organisations, lenders and governments are already moving to put public and finance policies in place to require and regulate biodiversity offsets, there are still many unsolved issues around biodiversity offset as a conservation tool.
In March 2012, IUCN Council requested IUCN Secretariat to explore, by establishing a technical expert panel, the issues surrounding the concept of biodiversity offsets and associated corporate targets, such as no net loss and net positive impact.
This workshop will offer the opportunity to present and discuss the conclusions reached by these experts and engage also other key stakeholders, from the conservation community, business operators and policy makers.
