Timeline Tool

The Timeline Tool assists professionals planning extractive projects in coordinating project development calendars, biodiversity impact assessment and management schedules, and financial timelines and milestones. It provides a clear, practical roadmap to identify milestones and key interdependencies between project development schedules, financing timelines and the actions required to apply the Mitigation Hierarchy effectively. It is not prescriptive, rather it raises awareness of the operational challenges associated with identifying and mitigating biodiversity impacts. The Timeline Tool can be used for training and communications for the variety of people involved in planning and executing complex, extractive-industry projects, including project managers, environmental advisors, consultants, financial advisers, project engineers and many more.

The Tool is available in English, with summaries in French, Spanish, Italian and Japanese
