About this event
Data4Nature is an initiative that encourages development actors and their partners to share biodiversity data from projects via the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). Just five development banks could generate hundreds of thousands of occurrence records annually, filling knowledge gaps in many data-poor developing countries.
Reuse of this data supports scientific research and policy, guides ecosystem preservation and not only fights against biodiversity loss, but also contributes to sustainable development in areas such as food security, climate change and human health.
In this Side Event to the Finance in Common Summit, representatives from GBIF, international development banks and private-sector companies will discuss how and why other actors that generate, publish and use biodiversity data can share this data.
The Agence Française de Développement Group funds, supports and accelerates the transition to a fairer and more sustainable world. Our teams carry out more than 4,000 projects in France’s overseas territories and another 115 countries. In this way, we contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.
