Can Biodiversity Net Gain help us reach England’s biodiversity goals?

At the end of 2023 new legislation will be enacted making it mandatory for nearly every new development in England to leave nature in a better state than before (so it achieves a mandatory “Biodiversity Net Gain” (BNG)). But will it work? The devil is in the detail. In this panel session, join a range of Oxford’s leading BNG experts for an introduction into this important new piece of legislation affecting England’s natural environment, the role it has the potential to play in helping England achieve its overarching biodiversity goals, and the things to look out for that will affect its effectiveness going forwards.

The panel will include:

Sophus zu Ermgassen, Ecological Economist, University of Oxford

Prue Addison, Conservation Strategy Director, Berks, Bucks, & Oxon Wildlife Trust

Natalie Duffus, researcher, University of Oxford

Joseph Bull, Associate Professor in Climate Change Biology, University of Oxford

This event is both in person and online
