Collective governance

Growing an alliance

BCA is a group of scientists, academics, conservation practitioners, and standard setters, with direct links to Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities on our Communities Advisory Panel (CAP). With the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) a Task Force member, BCA also embraces participation from the private sector. BCA is dynamic, open, and growing, and welcomes new members.

The BCA Task Force (TF) currently comprises 20 members who are primary reviewers of concepts developed by BCA Working Groups. TF is made up of institutions actively engaged in biodiversity credit related work. These include methodology developers, standard setters, academic and research institutions, along with representatives of the Communities Advisory Panel (CAP). TF is also the decision-making body and the main working organ of BCA. Membership is on an institutional basis and is voluntary, with no financial remuneration.

Full and effective engagement with Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities at the frontline of the nature crisis should be central to any nature market strategy. CAP (Communities Advisory Panel) is a specialist panel which allows BCA to consult with and learn from Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities.

BCA Working Groups are established to define and develop relevant concepts to assist the formulation of a transparent and trusted market in biodiversity credits. Members of working groups may include representatives from Forum, Task Force and CAP, as well as partner organizations when their expertise is required.
