What we do
The Knowledge Centre for Biodiversity supports policymaking:
- 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
On May 20, 2020, the European Commission adopted the new EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 and an associated Action Plan - a comprehensive, ambitious, long-term plan for protecting nature and reversing the degradation of ecosystems.
To support the strategy, a Knowledge Centre for Biodiversity has been established to help
- track and assess progress by the EU and its partners, including in relation to implementation of biodiversity-related international instruments
- foster cooperation and partnership, including between climate and biodiversity scientists
- underpin policy development.
As this Knowledge Centre is in its infancy, its content is expected to change and grow quickly over the months.
