Special event on Biodiversity: from observation to decision

Switzerland, in conjuntion with the Global Earth Observation Plenary (GEO X), is organising a day on biodiversity observation on 14th January 2014 in Geneva.

The Swiss Government, with the help of the Swiss Biodiversity Forum, is organizing this Biodiversity Special Event in the frame of the 10th GEO Plenary meeting and Ministerial Summit in Geneva, to raise awareness of the importance of the biodiversity and ecosystem services activities in GEO (Global Earth Observation).
The programme offers talks on Biodiversity Observation Networks at all scales, on how to use spatial data for ecosystem assessments, and provides case studies on how to connect different user needs with biodiversity and ecosystem observations. Moreover, there will be a poster presentation of different biodiversity observation projects in Switzerland in the Swiss Pavillon, and a panel discussion on "How to improve biodiversity information and use it for decision making".


The event is open to the public. Registration is free of charge. Lunch is only provided to registered participants.
Please register until the 10th of January 2014 here.
