EU BON - Building the European Biodiversity Observation Network
Title: EU BON - Building the European Biodiversity Observation Network
Title abbreviated: EU BON
Creator: Hauser, Christoph [Project Coordinator]; Hoffmann, Anke [Project Manager]; Pinho, Carla [Administrative Project Manager]
Abstract: he main objective of EU BON is to build a substantial part of the Group on Earth Observation’s Biodiversity Observation Network (GEO BON). In light of the new Intergovernmental science-policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), such a network and approach are imperative for attaining efficient processes of data collation, analysis and provisioning to stakeholders. A key feature of EU BON will be the delivery of near-real-time relevant data – both from on-ground observation and remote sensing – to the various stakeholders and end users ranging from local to global levels. Doing so will require (1) the establishment and adoption of new data standards and integration techniques, (2) harmonized data collection, and (3) the development of new approaches and strategies for future biodiversity monitoring and assessment. We will develop and provide practical indicators and interpretation tools for endusers from, e.g., agriculture to nature conservation. EU BON will support national and international authorities, as well as private stakeholders and the general public with integrated and scientifically sound biodiversity data analyses. The project intends to develop a full-scale model for a durable mechanism for higher level integration of biodiversity information providers and users through a network of networks approach scalable from local to global biodiversity observation systems.
