I am currently studying for my masters degree in Environmental Impact Assessment and Management at the University of Manchester. As part of the course, we have to complete a 15,000-word dissertation on a topic which we want to research. I decided to do a study on Biodiversity Offsetting, which is titled: An assessment of the effectiveness of biodiversity offsetting practice within the UK EIA system.
In order to do this, I have been using scientific journals, case studies from the DEFRA offsetting pilot and gathering information from professionals who have experience with this system.
I am writing on here to appeal to anyone who could possibly contribute to my dissertation through any insight that they have into this system, opinions on how the current system operates and potential recommendations on how practice could be further enhanced in the future etc.
