Energy by Design: Possible BMP for Mitigation Planning

Dave or Megan - TBD – October 14, 2009


Energy by design

Energy by Design

  • Objective: no net loss for priority species and vegetation

  • Dramatically improve mitigation; reduce negative impacts and deliver no net loss or in some cases a net gain for nature

  • Follow “mitigation hierarchy”

  • Avoid, minimize, restore and then offset

  • Better “early warning” and planning

  • Reduce development-conservation conflicts

  • More effective use of offsets

  • Conservation actions that compensate for residual, unavoidable harm to natural resource values


Degree of impact mitigation using avoid minimize restore offset

Degree of impact mitigation using avoid  minimize  restore  offset

“Early warning” & planning: development projects and conservation priorities

Summary

Summary

  • EBD: Goal-based, science-based, systematic, transparent, multi-stakeholder

  • Potential application to industry planning, EISs, Wildlife Mitigation Plans, Comprehensive Drilling Plans, etc.

  • Best practice for mitigation planning? TBD
