Mainstreaming the Mitigation Hierarchy in Impact Assessment
Many borrowing countries are in the process of either developing or applying new policies on biodiversity and ecosystem services that emphasize the importance of effective mitigation planning within the impact assessment (IA) process. The symposium will provide a forum for sharing and advancing leading practice in mitigation hierarchy implementation for biodiversity and ecosystem services to improve outcomes for society, conservation, business, and finance. It aims to broaden the community of practice, building a shared interpretation of standards and approaches commensurate with risk and opportunity. In addition to presentations, the symposium will feature debates based on experience of implementation on “thorny topics” with a view to resolving inconsistencies and informing risk-management processes.
