Everything you ever wanted to know about biodiversity (but were afraid to ask)
Launching the ’Knowledge Centre for Biodiversity’ Part 1
In partnership with the JRC
“Only what gets measured, gets done” said the President of the Commission when presenting the European Green Deal. The EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 calls for sound science, knowledge, monitoring, reporting and assessment to underpin progress. Data on biodiversity and indicators will be improved through better in-situ monitoring, mapping, modelling and the digital transformation. Citizen science will contribute data and knowledge to complement the improvement of the evidence base for policy making. The Commission is launching, in close cooperation with the EEA, a Biodiversity Knowledge Centre to track and assess progress and to underpin the integration of biodiversity and ecosystem services into decision-making.
