News: BBOP Strategy Updated

22 January 2016


On 26-27 October, 75 people attended the twelfth annual BBOP Advisory Group meeting, representing companies, consultancies, financial institutions, civil society organizations and governments.  The meeting was co-hosted with the Government of Catalonia which provided the marvelous venue, the historic Sant Pau Art Nouveau World Heritage Site.  Participants took stock of trends and developments in the world of avoiding and mitigating the impacts of development on biodiversity and ecosystem services, shared information on their work and updated BBOP’s strategy and priorities. 

A revised Vision, Mission, Goals and Strategy document for BBOP is available here. New areas of work include:

  • developing a corporate roadmap
  • developing a roadmap for governments
  • short publications explaining the mitigation hierarchy and offsets and making them accessible to a wide range of groups
  • case studies and training
  • help with feasibility studies and the design and implementation of mitigation measures including offsets
