The Knowledge Centre for Biodiversity is a European Commission initiative on better knowledge management for policymaking on the biodiversity.
The Knowledge Centre for Biodiversity supports policy making:
- by identifying, filtering and structuring relevant information and making it accessible bringing together researchers, policymakers, NGOs, industry and citizens
- analysing, synthesising available evidence and communicating it in a transparent, tailored and concise manner
Knowledge4Policy (K4P) supports evidence-based policymaking: bridging the world of policymakers - who ideally develop public policy based on sound scientific evidence - and the scientists who develop that evidence in the first place.
