Abstract

This report presents the findings of a research project undertaken by GHK Consulting Ltd (ICF GHK) and BIO Intelligence Service (BIO IS) for DG Environment to explore potential demand for and supply of habitat banking in the EU, and appropriate design elements for a habitat banking scheme. The research examined the following topics: ■ The legislative framework for addressing compensation for biodiversity loss in the EU and its Member States; ■ The potential demand for biodiversity offsets and habitat banking in the EU; ■ The supply of biodiversity offsets and habitat banking, and the key factors that affect supply; ■ The costs and benefits of biodiversity offsets and habitat banking schemes; ■ Key design elements of biodiversity offsets and habitat banking schemes; and ■ Gaps in knowledge that may be barriers to the design and implementation of offsets and habitat banking schemes in the EU, and priorities for further work.
