Biodiversity Offset Design Handbook Appendicies – 2009

View Publication

This companion volume of Appendices to the BBOP Offset Design Handbook offers readers a summary of a sample of methodologies relevant to biodiversity offsets and some references on them for further reading. Some approaches are required or recommended by government policies; some are the subject of the lending requirements of banks; some are still under development (the approach adapted and tested by BBOP in its pilot projects, REMEDE, the New Zealand, Risk Index Method and Averted Risk Formulae) and some other supportive or supplementary methodologies. Various aspects of each approach or methodology are described where relevant (since some of the approaches or methodologies are not specific to offset design, it is not possible in all cases to provide information on every aspect).
