White paper: options and financial mechanisms for the financing of biodiversity offsets

Document Summary: 

This White Paper focuses almost exclusively on how greater demand for offsets can be generated and sustained and how offset supply can be safeguarded by a variety of financing products categorised under three distinct pillars, including upfront capital, ongoing finance, and financial guarantees. Central to the conclusions of the report are mechanisms such as third-party funding institutions including Conservation Trust Funds (CTFs), and financial guarantees or insurance products.
