National Biodiversity Offsets Conference

National Biodiversity Offsets Conference

Monday 26 - Wednesday 28 August 2019
Hotel Realm | 18 National Circuit, Canberra ACT 2600

Biodiversity offsets are now used by all levels of government throughout Australia to counterbalance significant environmental impacts. The National Biodiversity Offsets Conference, to be held on 26 to 28 August 2019 in Canberra, will provide an opportunity to:

  • Discuss their history and effectiveness in addressing environmental impacts;
  • Share the experiences from all levels of government;
  • Learn from academics, the legal fraternity and those involved in offset markets;
  • Hear from individuals involved in the hands-on delivery of offsets;
  • Explore different metrics for measuring impact and calculating offset delivery; and
  • Debate the relative benefits of direct, indirect and ‘pay and go’ offsets.

This two-day conference will be of interest to policy makers, regulatory authorities, academics, offset brokers, environmental practitioners, offset providers and the legal fraternity. All participants will receive an understanding of biodiversity offsets and the opportunity to participate in a closing session aimed at identifying priorities for biodiversity offsets into the future. On Wednesday 28 August, a technical field trip has been organised exclusively for conference delegates.
