Revised 10 tips for successful BES management


On the occasion of the upcoming World Parks Congress global forum, IPIECA has revised the guidance on Managing Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services (BES) issues along the asset life-cycle in any environment: 10 tips for success in the oil and gas industry.

Originally published in 2010, the tips provide high level guidance on managing BES in the oil and gas industry. Each tip is supported by resources, many of which are IPIECA/IOGP documents. The key updates in the new version include:

    • Full integration of Ecosystem Services management into the tips.
    • An updated list of resources associated with each tip based on new and relevant publications in this area, such as those produced by the Cross-Sector Biodiversity Initiative (CSBI).

Starting with ‘Begin yesterday’ and ending with ‘Monitor, adapt and improve’, the tips provide relevant advice along every stage of the asset life-cycle.
