Estimating the costs of offset actions (spreadsheet)
Date: 05, May, 2021
Publisher: TSR Hub
This spreadsheet can be used to estimate the costs of offset actions. It provides a standardised method for costs to be compared across management actions and species and provides the data in a format that can be modified for use in the future. It was developed for NESP project 5.1 (better offsets for threatened species), adapted from Carwardine et al. 2019 and Iacona et al. 2018.
