Building on its extensive knowledge of the Belgian context, experts from the Belgian Biodiversity Platform are well equipped to represent the scientific community in international science-policy initiatives.

Our organisation is in contact with Belgian decision-makers and represents the Belgian federal government in different international and intergovernmental meetings.

The Belgian Biodiversity Platform has accumulated vast expertise on the political decision-making process and the rules of procedures pertaining to international bodies.

We ensure Belgium is represented at international processes that deal with strategic decisions related to research priorities, science-policy knowledge on environmental research and funding opportunities for biodiversity research. By participating in international fora, our organisation is able to support decision-making processes and build ties with other national organisations for future joint activities.

The Belgian Biodiversity Platform also provides feedback to the Belgian scientific community on the latest developments in biodiversity-related international initiatives and multilateral environmental agreements. In a more global sense, our organisation strives to ensure effective decisions are taken that will ultimately lead to sustainable development.
