No Biodiversity Offsets! | Wednesday, 30 October 2013

Around the world, ecosystems and the communities are harmed by large infrastructure projects, extractive industries and new financial markets. To facilitate these activities, public and private entities are promoting new schemes to allow their environmental impacts to be ‘offset’.

Business and governments will meet to discuss biodiversity offsetting in Edinburgh, Scotland between 21-22 November. A group of NGOs, social movements and civil society groups have drafted a statement against the privatization of nature. The statement is open for signatures until the 14th of November.
