UN Biodiversity Conference – Investing in people and planet, Sharm El Sheikh
With the UN Biodiversity Conference in full swing in Egypt, TBC’s Chief Executive, Dr Jon Ekstrom, is advocating Science Based Targets for biodiversity as a practical, achievable way for business to engage in a post 2020 framework.
Catch Jon outlining his vision of how to create an enabling environment to engage businesses in the post-2020 global biodiversity framework at the Rio Conventions Pavilion on 20 November 2018. (Part of “Rethinking Biodiversity Governance for transformative change” Side Event.)
National biodiversity policies are evolving – what is your government doing?
IUCN, The Biodiversity Consultancy and the Durrell Institute of Conservation & Ecology (DICE), University of Kent, researched the mitigation hierarchy and offset provisions in national law and legislation of 198 countries. The big news is that more and more countries now require developers to consider the mitigation hierarchy and biodiversity offsets. This trend looks set to continue.
The results of our research are available in the
Global Inventory of Biodiversity Offset Policies (GIBOP) – a free, online database compiling information on the status, scope, and implementation of biodiversity offset policies around the world. (See IUCN GIBOP press release for further information.)
