Establishment of the offset plan for biodiversity loss Ruta del Sol Sector III, Ye de Ciénaga – Bosconia – Valledupar, Departments of Magdalena and Cesar, 2016
The development of infrastructure projects produces a series of adverse impacts for the natural resources, ecosystems, and related social groups. In order to reduce the effects of these activities, the national environmental authorities established the offset for biodiversity loss, as a promising strategy for the management of these interventions.
The Ruta del Sol project, according with its environmental commitments, began the formulation of the offset plan for biodiversity loss in the sector III, between Ye de Ciénaga – Bosconia – Valledupar, with the advice of MoAm. The plan was constructed based on the offsets handbook elaborated by the Ministry of Environmental and Sustainable Development, field surveys, secondary information review, worldwide experiences, and the specific requirements and advice of the Regional Autonomous Corporation of Magdalena – Corpamag, and the Regional Autonomous Corporation of Cesar – Corpocesar.
