A Session of the Sustainable Development and Environmental Economics Seminar is held in Paris on Tuesday, September 30, 2014. It is entitled “Biodiversity Offsetting and sustainable development: a right to destroy, a fool’s bargain or a tool for reconciliation?”
Faced with a growing demand for infrastructure and territorial planning, the conservation of biodiversity is under threat. In this context, offsetting biodiversity is often presented as a “win-win” solution, reconciling biodiversity protection and development. But, instead, could it be a right to destroy?
This seminar with Fabien Quétier and Harold Levrel, co-organised in cooperation with the INVALUABLE research project, will take stock of this complex and crucial debate.
Venue: 4 Rue de Chevreuse, Reid Hall — Columbia Paris
Time: 12:30 to 2:30 pm
