Good Practices for Biodiversity Inclusive Impact Assessment and Management Planning

Jul 2015
This document is produced for project developers and their consultants responsible for preparing Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIAs). It summarizes "good practices" for biodiversity inclusive impact assessment and management planning in ESIAs. The document is based on a review and synthesis of various reports and guidance documents from multi-lateral finance institutions (MFIs), government regulators, industry associations, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). It is not intended to replace ESIA guidance, but rather to supplement it where biodiversity is not adequately covered. This document is a companion to Good Practices for the Collection of Biodiversity Baseline Data.
