A loss-gain calculator for biodiversity offsets and the circumstances in which no net loss is feasible
Offsetting is a policy instrument intended to provide flexibility for development. We developed a simple calculator to predict when no net loss is feasible using biodiversity offsetting. Assuming offset ratios ≤10:1 are indicative of operational feasibility and employing a discount rate of 3%, we predicted that no net loss is feasible where biodiversity can be restored within 55 years, which restricts the impacts on biodiversity that can be offset using restoration. Alternatively, no net loss...[Show more]
