2023 Theme: DISCOVER THE BELGIAN BIODIVERSITY MONITORING LANDSCAPE
The Belgian Biodiversity Platform is happy to invite you to the 8th edition of the Biodiversity Market (formally known as the BEES Market).
Full programme coming up soon !
This science-policy-practice fair invites participation from all of our working areas on Biodiversity research, policy and practice including topics such as Invasive Alien Species, Biodiversity & Health, Biodiversity conservation, Biodiversity Data...
This year the market will focus on biodiversity monitoring. Following the COP15 Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) and the EU biodiversity strategy 2030, it is now key to monitor progress towards these news targets.
At the European level, there are substantial efforts to harmonize biodiversity monitoring schemes and to set up a European Observation Network, based on existing national and subnational biodiversity monitoring schemes.
Bringing together Belgian Biodiversity actors and discussing how we could better organize ourselves could contribute to the reporting needs as well as the European efforts. Getting a better understanding of the biodiversity monitoring actors (who are they / what are they working on), data flows, and use of monitoring data both by public & private decision makers, will lead to a huge advancement in Biodiversity research.
Meet you at the Biodiversity Spring market!
