This infographic is intended to illustrate the concept of biodiversity offsetting based on avoided loss and how this can contribute towards ensuring No Net Loss of biodiversity results from a development project. It is aimed at introducing the concept, which is relatively complex, to non-experts who have not come across it before. The target audience is students (age 16+) but it could also be used by practioners on websites to explain the concept.
