Work Package 2

WP2 oversees the processes of identifying critical stakeholders to map out user and policy needs for biodiversity monitoring and facilitates knowledge exchange via a series of workshops. This WP further plans to investigate the feasibility of setting up a Biodiversity Monitoring Coordination Centre (BMCC) in Europe, which can coordinate monitoring activities across Europe, streamline knowledge and data, and facilitate policy uptake of biodiversity data for multiple purposes and policy objectives.
