GB24 Public Session

On 26 September, much of the day was allocated to the 2017 Public Session, which focused on GBIF's progress towards the goals outlined in the 2017-2021 Strategic Plan and Implementation Plan.

The session agenda was organized to address each of these five goals, with GBIF Secretariat staff and selected Participants providing progress updates, outlining plans for the 2018 Work Programme, and, where possible, allowing for discussion in plenary.

Our sincere thanks to iDigBio for providing staff time and expertise to record the public session.
