Biodiversity Offsets: Opportunities and challenges for their effective design and implementation — resources from an OECD workshop

The OECD has held a work­shop on bio­di­ver­sity off­sets on 6–7 Novem­ber 2013 at the OECD Head­quar­ters. The work­shop exam­ined the tech­ni­cal and ana­lyt­i­cal issues related to their effec­tive design and imple­men­ta­tion with an aim to derive insights on and exam­ples of good practice.

The work­shop brought together gov­ern­ment, the pri­vate sec­tor, IGO’s, NGO’s, and other experts and prac­ti­tion­ers, so as to exchange expe­ri­ence and lessons learned on the key oppor­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges asso­ci­ated with bio­di­ver­sity off­set schemes.

The work­shop is very well doc­u­mented and you can access the Agenda, Pow­er­point pre­sen­ta­tions and Par­tic­i­pants list. For an overview see the full list of ses­sions, speak­ers and pre­sen­ta­tions below.
