Biodiversity Offsets

The Biodiversity Finance Initiative – BIOFIN, and the Business and Biodiversity Offsets Programme – BBOP, held a webinar on 16th of November 2016 on biodiversity offsets. The link to the webinar and a presentation on the South Africa case can be found at this link. The BIOFIN team looks forward to continuing the discussion on this particular finance solution here on BES-Net's Biodiversity Finance forum.

Biodiversity Finance Initiative – BIOFIN, and offsets

I am interested to know if there has been some progress on Biodiversity offsets/finance in 2017? Could you please update?

Thanks,

BIOFIN- finance mechanisms

We have completed the preliminary stage of screening finance mechanisms by looking into the case studies practiced in India (http://www.biodiversityfinance.net/india). Biodiversity Offsets has emerged as one of the important finance mechanisms for biodiversity conservation in India and if finalized will be considered for further assessment.

Thank you!

Thanks Nupur, I'll be keen to know how you assess the value of biodiversity credits, particularly in Indian context where people have multiple values for the diversity of flora and fauna. I trust that you'll be capturing the complexity of values and developing offsets based on multiple benefits.
