Biodiversity Offset Financing
Date: September 4, at 10:00-11:00am CEST
Venue: Conservation Finance Pavilion (WCC Exhibition Space) and online
The rapid pace of infrastructure development, mining, and urban expansion increasingly impacts on the diminishing area of natural habitats and ecosystems. Biodiversity offsets have been shown to be effective in several countries and different forms of “compensation” are found in many countries yet their effectiveness and impact remains uncertain. This session will explore the state of biodiversity offsets in Africa and elsewhere and will present some innovative financing mechanisms to increase their use and effectiveness for supporting meaningful biodiversity conservation.
