IUCN: Mitigating biodiversity impacts associated with solar and wind energy development

Renewable energy is key for the transition to a low-carbon future, but even clean energy sources can have significant unintended impacts on the environment if not managed and mitigated appropriately.

Technology to improve the management of development impacts on biodiversity

From automation to traceability and remote sensing to eDNA sampling, technology use for conservation holds the promise to help businesses better understand baseline values, and predict, mitigate and...

eDNA and biodiversity risk

Environmental DNA (eDNA) as a tool for biodiversity surveys is a relatively new, but rapidly developing field. In this briefing note we look at the current state of eDNA approaches.

Orangutans: good practice guidance for industry

All three species of orangutan are listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List. This Industry Briefing Note outlines essential good practice for considering orangutans on your project, especially when alignment with PS6 is required.

How to make biodiversity surveys relevant to your project

"Measure twice, cut once". Getting biodiversity biodiversity surveys right the first time is the equivalent to this proverb. Good survey design ensures data are relevant, creates opportunities for avoidance and minimisation, and...

A cross-sector guide for implementing the Mitigation Hierarchy

Practical guidance, innovative approaches and examples to support operationalising the mitigation hierarchy effectively. CSBI’s guide prepared by TBC was written with input from technical specialists in impact assessment, extractive industry experts and financial institutions, with feedback and input from the non-profit sector.

NNL and NPI approaches for biodiversity: exploring the potential application of these approaches in the commercial agriculture and forestry sectors

Drawing on experience from other sectors, this IUCN report explores how agriculture and forestry projects can take practical steps to achieve NNL or NPI on biodiversity.
