New Zealand Biodiversity Offsets Guidance Released — new discussion on LinkedIn

Lau­rence Barea has started a new dis­cus­sion in the BBOP NO Net Loss Dis­cus­sion Group on LinkedIn to announce that the Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion of the New Zealand Gov­ern­ment has issued a Guid­ance on Good Prac­tice Bio­di­ver­sity Off­set­ting in New Zealand, called “the Guidance” 😉

The New Zealand Gov­ern­ment released its Good Prac­tice Guid­ance on Bio­di­ver­sity Off­set­ting on the 7th of August. This non-statutory guid­ance is the result of a 3 year Cross Gov­ern­ment Depart­ment Research Pro­gramme that inves­ti­gated off­set­ting con­cepts and approaches in New Zealand. The guid­ance draws heav­ily from the BBOP guid­ance and places it in a New Zealand con­text, where in most cases, bio­di­ver­sity off­set­ting is a vol­un­tary offering.

Here’s the link to the dis­cus­cion (to join the dis­cus­sion you need to become mem­ber of the group):
