Abstr. due: 12.01.2018
Dates: 22.07.18 — 27.07.18
Organizing comittee e-mail: email@example.com
Organizers: GEO BON
Some of the key GEO BON goals for 2025 include:
- GEO BON has facilitated the development or enhancement of at least 25 national biodiversity observation systems, representing most of the Earth’s major biomes, that are coordinated and can contribute to regional and global biodiversity assessments.
- At least 10 regularly updated operational products (e.g. global change detection maps of forest cover; compendium of marine environmental databases) have been developed, providing high quality observations, information and data to scientists, decision-makers and the public at various scales; remotely sensed and in-situ data (based on the EBVs) are routinely used as inputs to these observation products and contribute to models that support improved policy assessments and scenarios at multiple scales.
- A strong, balanced and sustained biodiversity observation community is functioning, based on shared resources and increased capacity.
