“EBV-ScaleUp will transform a suite of ‘Essential Biodiversity Variables’ from proofs-of-concept to application-ready global time-series datasets for land, freshwater and marine realms. These new resources will improve the capacity of subnational, national, and intergovernmental bodies to monitor progress towards biodiversity-related policy targets, especially in the context of the CBD Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.” Dr. Carsten Meyer, Head of research group “Macroecology & Society,” German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) Halle-Jena-Leipzig.
