About the Conference

  • This gathering will be the first global conference on approaches to avoid, minimise, restore, and offset biodiversity loss.
  • The aim is to explore how we companies, governments, banks and civil society can chart a course to demonstrate ‘No Net Loss’ and preferably a ‘Net Gain’ of biodiversity in the context of development projects, plans and policies.

The objectives of the conference are to:

  • Catalyse agreement on practical ways for business leaders, policy-makers and members of civil society to make this generation generation the first to leave the world’s biodiversity and ecosystem services in a better condition than that in which they inherited it
  • Exchange ideas and experience from many countries and industry sectors on best practice
  • Provide advice on the design and implementation of mitigation measures, offsets and conservation banks to those who need it
