Dave Poulton, principal, Poulton Environmental Strategies

The Faculty of Law and the Canadian Institute of Resources Law invite you to attend a free public lecture on Can Markets Save Biodiversity? The Promise and Perils of Biodiversity Offsets.

Increasingly scholars and policy-makers of all political stripes are expressing interest in using market forces to improve environmental conditions. This discussion will examine the nature and potential of this trend, focusing on one such tool: biodiversity offsets. It will look at how these mechanisms work in theory, potential issues, and how we see them developing and working in Alberta and Canada.

Dave Poulton, principal, Poulton Environmental Strategies, will be the lecturer.

This event is sponsored by the Alberta Law Foundation.
