Outcomes of the New Zealand Department of Conservation's Biodiversity Offset Programme

by Portal Web Editor last modified Jan 10, 2013 10:02 AM New Zealand Department of Conservation
In 2009, the New Zealand Department of Conservation (DOC) initiated a research program to investigate the feasibility of biodiversity offsets in New Zealand. The research program has covered areas such as the key elements of No Let Loss offsets, appropriate limits to offsets, and overcoming systemic barriers to successful offsets. As a result of this research, decision-makers and developers in New Zealand have a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities inherent in this highly complex area.

The 3-year research program has now drawn to a close. The outputs of the program continue to inform the Department of Conservation's developing policy position on biodiversity offsets, and will help to underpin the best practice guidance on biodiversity offsets in New Zealand being developed by DOC.

The DOC Biodiversity Offsetting Programme continues to align with BBOP and has sponsored two mutually-beneficial papers under the BBOP research program.

Please join us for this webinar (8am, 13 September NZ time), presented by Gerri Ward, Programme Manager of the DOC New Zealand's Biodiversity Offsets Programme, which will cover:

*  The purpose and objectives of the Biodiversity Offsetting Programme
*  Key lessons learnt
*  The Guidance on best practice biodiversity offsets in New Zealand
*  The legal and policy context in New Zealand, and the likely application of offsets in future.
