First-ever database on biodiversity offset policies launched
Building on TBC’s research and
Industry Briefing Note, we are proud to launch in conjunction with IUCN, the International Union for Conservation of Nature, and IGF, the InterGovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development, the first-ever global biodiversity offset policy database.
A preliminary analysis of the publicly available data gathered from more than 198 countries shows that government policies on biodiversity offsets have doubled in the last 15 years. More specifically, the analysis indicates that most mining-dependent and biodiversity-rich countries studied tend to have advanced offset policies.
Global Inventory on Biodiversity Offset Policies is the first online, public inventory, which aims to assist developers, as well as lenders and policy makers.
