OCTA: Joining EU Biodiversity Network
The OCT Association announces engagement with the Biodiversa Advisory Board. Biodiversa is an EU-funded network supporting pan-European Research for the Conservation and Sustainable Management of Biodiversity aiming at improving ecosystem functioning and delivery of ecosystem services in a global change context. The Advisory Board will work on strategic aspects of BiodivERsA’s activities, in particular contributing to the preparation of the common roadmap of the network. It will also advise on research priorities, as well as the evaluation of major deliverables such as the “Stakeholder Engagement Handbook,” or the series of BiodivERsA policy briefs.
In addition, OCTA informs that OCTs would be able to benefit directly from this project through a dedicated overseas Work Package (coordinated by the Guadeloupe Region) that is mainly comprised of public and private entities from the Outermost Regions and OCTs.
