BBOP webinar today, May 18, 2015: The Cross Sector Biodiversity Initiative Mitigation Hierarchy Guide

bbop-logoToday is another BBOP webi­nar being held.

This time the topic is: “The Cross Sec­tor Bio­di­ver­sity Ini­tia­tive
Mit­i­ga­tion Hier­ar­chy Guide”. Mark John­ston (the cur­rent Chair of CSBI) will present the cur­rent work plan and activ­i­ties of CSBI and pro­vide details on the con­tent and key prin­ci­ples cov­ered in the CSBI Mit­i­ga­tion Hier­ar­chy guide.

 As usual the webi­nar is part of the BBOP com­mu­nity of prac­tice (all pre­vi­ous webi­nars are archived there if you want to lis­ten to them later).

When and how does the BBOP webi­nar take place?

Some infor­ma­tion on the BBOP webinar

The Cross Sec­tor Bio­di­ver­sity Ini­tia­tive (CSBI) is a forum to pro­vide lead­er­ship in devel­op­ing and shar­ing good prac­tice related to bio­di­ver­sity and ecosys­tem ser­vices in the extrac­tive indus­try. Formed between IPIECA, ICMM and the Equa­tor Prin­ci­ples Asso­ci­a­tion, CSBI sup­ports the broader goals of apply­ing inno­va­tion and trans­parency through the mit­i­ga­tion hier­ar­chy with respect to bio­di­ver­sity and ecosys­tem ser­vices through­out its mem­bers’ project activities.

Over the last 18 months the CSBI has been devel­op­ing a “Cross-Sector Guide for Imple­ment­ing the Mit­i­ga­tion Hier­ar­chy”  This Guide pro­vides high-level guid­ance for using the Mit­i­ga­tion Hier­ar­chy effec­tively to man­age the poten­tial impacts of extrac­tive activ­i­ties on BES through­out project life spans. It aims to reflect state-of-the-art good prac­tice of oper­a­tional­iz­ing the Mit­i­ga­tion Hier­ar­chy for bio­di­ver­sity impact man­age­ment for extrac­tive indus­tries.  It draws upon experts in rel­e­vant fields and cur­rent sci­en­tific lit­er­a­ture, rec­og­nizes gaps and chal­lenges in the imple­men­ta­tion of each step of the Mit­i­ga­tion Hier­ar­chy and leaves room for adapt­abil­ity to future advances in these areas.
