The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF)
15/10/2018, Kilkenny, Ireland
The National Biodiversity Data Centre will host the 2018 Governing Board meeting of the Intergovernmental organisation The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) in Kilkenny, from 15th to 19th October 2018. This organisation manages a global digital platform to publish and share information and data about the world's biodiversity (natural heritage), and supports a global network of countries, organisations and institutions working to build the evidence base to inform policy. A public symposium will be run in conjunction with this to showcase how GBIF links local, national, regional and global information as a shared resource for everyone to use.
