The Impact Mitigation and Ecological Compansation Thematic Group aims to develop guidance around implementation of the mitigation hierarchy and ecological compensation. It will do this based on ongoing case study review of policy and practice regarding mitigation and compensation design, governance, financing and implementation, building upon significant existing experience and lessons learnt by numerous stakeholders. Ultimately, it aims to achieve ongoing improvement towards best-practice in application of the mitigation hierarchy, including identifying how to best link mitigation and compensation efforts to global and jurisdiction-level biodiversity targets, and to related environmental and social science-based targets such as zero deforestation, carbon neutrality, biodiversity net gain, land degradation neutrality, nature-based solutions, ecosystem-based adaptation, empowering of indigenous peoples and vulnerable groups, among others.

Amrei is an ecologist with a PhD from the University of Cape Town. Between 2009 and 2019 she was the Science Lead for the international multi-stakeholder Business and Biodiversity Offset Programme (BBOP), hosted by Forest Trends, where she led the scientific development of BBOP’s widely regarded work on best practice in the mitigation hierarchy and achieving no net loss (NNL) of biodiversity or a net gain (NG). To ground this in practical experiences, she has worked closely with private and public sector development projects (e.g. infrastructure, mining), and with financial institutions and governments across the world. Amrei continues offering specialist advice in this field, working across policy and practice. In 2022 Amrei joined the Wildlife Conservation Society as Programme Director, leading an international team and teams in six countries in Africa and Asia in implementing the Conservation, Mitigation and Biodiversity Offsets (COMBO) Programme, funded by the Agence Française de Développement and the Fonds Français pour l’Environnement Mondial. She is based in Cape Town, South Africa, and is a Co-Chair of the IUCN Thematic Group Impact Mitigation and Ecological Compensation (IMEC).
