EuropaBON hereby invite you to become a EuropaBON member, where you will also be able to indicate your interest to engage as a EuropaBON stakeholder.
Biodiversity observations are key to understanding trends and drivers of biodiversity change and the impacts on ecosystem services - and ultimately on people. Nevertheless, there continues to be limited availability of harmonized, long-term, spatially explicit and regularly updated biodiversity data on the EU-scale. Additionally, various biodiversity data streams are often fragmented and siloed, highlighting lack of visibility of available data at the EU-scale.

However, efforts to monitor biodiversity are spatially and temporally fragmented, taxonomically biased, and lack integration in Europe.

During the project, selected EuropaBON stakeholders will be invited to join thematic workshops based on their expertise. The aim of these workshops is to facilitate knowledge exchange to identify specific user and policy needs for biodiversity monitoring. These stakeholder groups will provide input on existing monitoring schemes and on the practical needs of the communities and user groups involve with biodiversity monitoring and the cost-effectiveness of a EuropaBON.
