This virtual round table, chaired by GBIF Secretariat, forms part of the virtual segment of the 5th Science-Policy Forum for Biodiversity and 8th International Conference on Sustainability Science, held in conjunction with the upcoming UN Biodiversity Conference in Kunming, China (CBD COP15). The round table will explore measures needed to improve the mobilization and sharing of data, information and knowledge required to support the implementation of the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

Participants will, inter alia, explore options for promoting the establishment of biodiversity monitoring systems and protocols, discuss policies and best practices to ensure that data is shared in standardized formats to enable re-use and universal access; and identify indicators and tools to ensure that data, information and knowledge are made available in formats that can support policy and decision-making, planning and implementation relating to biodiversity.
