The recently started Biodiversity Offsets Blog aims to provide an interdisciplinary platform for the information and exchange on Biodiversity Offsets and the Mitigation Hierarchy.
The goal is to mainstream and facilitate the discussion on Biodiversity Offsets. This includes the following objectives:
- The focus lies on biodiversity offsets as such (not market based instruments or other more general topics).
- The formerly widespread information shall be brought together to make it easily accessible for a maximum of people
- and thereby to unite the societal debate with academic findings and practical insights.
- This includes joining different perspectives (biodiversity offsets are not restricted to the interest of business).
The Biodiversity Offsets Blog combines general information (including an updated list of experts, literature, websites etc.) with frequent blog posts on new articles, scientific papers, political news, offset examples on the ground and so on.
As the platform shall bring people and their expertise together, all those who are interested are encouraged to share their knowledge, views, questions or concerns and help to build a broad information base. Find out more here.
