WP7 Implementation of GEO BON: strategies and solutions at European and global levels


  • To develop strategies for future integrated biodiversity and Earth observation information generation and management
  • To facilitate / improve future biodiversity assessments across broader scales
  • To design templates for future integrated information infrastructures at national  and international levels
  • To develop new tools and improved  procedures for support of CBD and IPBES
Key messages
  • The work of EU BON is relevant not only for the European context, but also for the global context.
  • It is important to see the transferability of EU BON results to other societal and biodiversity backgrounds.
  • In that respect it is also important to keep in mind, how EU BON can benefit the opinion building process amongst stakeholders and policy makers.
