On September 7, 2018, Founding Director Leah Gerber represented the Center for Biodiversity Outcomes at a workshop titled “Biodiversity and Business” at the University of Oxford’s Department of Zoology. The goal of the workshop was to develop a proof of concept “That the wealth of academic research and practice on biodiversity indicator development is directly relevant to businesses who are seeking to identify or develop biodiversity indicators,” as stated by the organizers. This event was part of a series of workshops organized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature Species Survival Commission, the University of Oxford and the Interdisciplinary Center for Conservation Science. The event was part of the first phase of the IUCN and Oxford University project. For additional information, click here.
