EuropaBON takes the stage at this year’s GEO BON Conference in Montreal, Canada

Between 10-13 October 2023, the EuropaBON project made a significant presence at the GEO BON Global Conference: Monitoring Biodiversity for Action in Montreal, Canada. This conference, occurring one year after the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity and the Global Biodiversity Framework agreement, focused on the crucial task of ‘Monitoring Biodiversity for Action.’

The overarching theme of the conference centered on the development of best practices and innovative technologies for biodiversity observations and monitoring, with a specific emphasis on empowering policy. EuropaBON actively participated in this discourse, showcasing its work through a presentation titled “Gaps in Biodiversity Monitoring in Europe: an Essential Biodiversity Variables approach.” This presentation, delivered by a group of project members, including the EuropaBON coordinator Henrique Pereira (iDiv) and other consortium members, shed light on the project’s efforts and findings.

Moreover, a collaboration between EuropaBON and B-Cubed project was highlighted, as in a presentation given by Lina Estupinan Suarez (iDiv), the link between B-Cubed’s approach to scaling data cubes for Essential Biodiversity Variables and its contribution to the estimation of species level Essential Biodiversity Variables identified by EuropaBON, was established.
