4 GBIF-endorsed campaigns underway
Date:2/8/2008

on Biological Diversity;
  • building a biodiversity information facility for the Amazon basin;
  • increasing the available data and building networks to address the global pollinator crisis; and
  • developing a register of marine species for the world.

Each of these GBIF Campaigns is described below. More information on the partners involved in the Campaign, the activities that are planned for the Campaign, etc., can be sought from the contact persons listed with the descriptions.

GBIF looks forward to the successful implementation of these Campaigns and encourages all interested parties to participate in them and contribute to their success.


GBIF for 2010

Claire Brown, UNEP WCMC claire.brown@unep-wcmc.org

The GBIF 2010 Campaign, led by Australia and UNEP-WCMC, will mobilise and apply GBIF data to address the globally recognised biodiversity target for 2010 of a significant reduction in the current rate of biodiversity loss at the global, regional and national levels. At the core of the Campaign is better measurement of biodiversity patterns (by integrating GBIF and other data) and better support for the decision-making and planning needed to reduce biodiversity loss (by using systematic conservation planning).

While many have regarded the 2010 target as difficult to achieve, a reduced rate of biodiversity loss by 2010 is possible, based on the core idea of systematic conservation planning (SCP). Simply put, land-use planning and other decision making that more efficiently balances conservation with other needs of society implies reduced biodiversity losses, compared to business-as-usual. Through that important core idea of finding a balance, the GBIF 2010 Campaign provides links to the Millenniu
