Strength­en­ing imple­men­ta­tion of the Mit­i­ga­tion Hier­ar­chy:
man­ag­ing bio­di­ver­sity risk for greater con­ser­va­tion gains

Descrip­tion: This project brings researchers from the Depart­ments of Geog­ra­phy and Zool­ogy at the Uni­ver­sity of Cam­bridge together with busi­ness and bio­di­ver­sity spe­cial­ists in FFI, BirdLife, RSPB, and UNEP-WCMC to iden­tify and pro­mote best prac­tice for imple­ment­ing the mit­i­ga­tion hier­ar­chy and thus reduc­ing the risks posed to busi­nesses from the destruction/loss of bio­di­ver­sity. The results will be inte­grated by com­pa­nies into their operations.

Dura­tion: 2014 — ongoing

Improv­ing the poten­tial of bio­di­ver­sity off­set­ting to rec­on­cile devel­op­ment and con­ser­va­tion: will good envi­ron­men­tal out­comes coun­ter­bal­ance the bad?

Descrip­tion: This research aims to eval­u­ate alter­na­tive approaches to bio­di­ver­sity off­set­ting from a series of regions, each at dif­fer­ent stages of eco­nomic devel­op­ment. It will reveal how dif­fer­ent off­set approaches, base­line assump­tions, and sources of uncer­tainty affect the long-term reten­tion of bio­di­ver­sity, and will develop new approaches that bet­ter bal­ance bio­di­ver­sity con­ser­va­tion and devel­op­ment. I plan to develop case stud­ies for a range of case study species and ecosys­tems glob­ally, and sim­u­late the long-term con­se­quences of dif­fer­ent exist­ing and pro­posed off­set­ting approaches.

 Dura­tion: 2015 — 2018
