By detailing national reporting processes and data flows in several European Union member states, this project will explore how changes to GBIF tools and procedures could streamline and improve biodiversity reporting across the region. The project team will identify and summarize best practices and share the resulting recommendations with both the GBIF Secretariat and other European Nodes.

This project will start by documenting both the biodiversity reporting mechanisms and the partners’ experiences in Belgium, France, Ireland, Norway and Portugal. This review of various processes is expected to lead to proposed best practices and recommendations while improving understanding of stakeholder needs and procedures for data and decision-making.
