A place for biodiversity offsets
Sponsored by Alberta Innovates, the Alberta Land Institute is presenting an eight-part web forum starting on April 19 and running until June 14.
Biodiversity offsetting is the process of intentionally producing environmental gains to counterweigh the negative impacts of development on nature, with a goal of no net loss or net gain for biodiversity. It is increasingly used as a policy mitigation tool to reconcile development and environmental protection, both in Canada and many other countries around the world.
To help advance thinking, policy and practice respecting biodiversity offsetting, the Alberta Land Institute is presenting a series of web-based presentations and discussions to improve understanding regarding current thinking on offsetting.
We will be engaging academic experts, practitioners, policy-makers and stakeholders in insightful discussions that aim to link the theory and practice of practice of offsetting for biodiversity.
This multi-part series starts on April 19th and registration is free.
