Biodiversity offsetting and sustainable development: a right to destroy, a fool’s bargain or a tool for reconciliation?

4 rue de Chevreuse
75006 Paris 30th of September 2014

A session of the Sustainable Development and Environmental Economics Seminar

At Reid Hall - Columbia Paris -- from 12:30 to 2:30 pm

Presentation of the session :

Faced with a growing demand for infrastructure and territorial planning, the conservation of biodiversity is under threat. In this context, offsetting biodiversity is often presented as a “win-win” solution, reconciling biodiversity protection and development. But, instead, could it be a right to destroy?

This seminar with Fabien Quétier and Harold Levrel, co-organised in cooperation with the INVALUABLE research project, will takes stock of this complex and crucial debate.
