The expansion of our towns and cities, development of new infrastructure, and ongoing resource extraction and energy generation, must be carefully managed. Otherwise, degradation of nature, and inequitable outcomes for people, are inevitable.
These pages are a hub of information and resources for the community of practice interested in the management of development impacts on biodiversity and people.
Here, you will find the latest research, policies, and tools relating to biodiversity offsetting and ecological compensation, the mitigation hierarchy, and the environmental and social impact assessment process.
"Our goal is to act as a forum for the sharing of knowledge and experiences, and the generation of ideas around how we can continually refine and enhance our ability to balance development with good outcomes for people and the planet."
