Industry guidance for early screening of biodiversity risk for onshore wind energy development

This document provides brief practical guidance on early risk screening for onshore wind projects. It outlines how to identify and avoid areas of high biodiversity sensitivity, based on the IUCN/TBC Guidelines for Mitigating biodiversity impacts associated with solar and wind energy development. It is relevant to both project financers and developers and is applicable to developments around the world.
