Biodiversa+ is supported by the Operational Team (OT), led by the Chief Executive Officer.

The operational team ensures the operational management, oversight, and implementation of the Partnership’s operations, carrying out certain of them when appropriate and usually assisting Partners in doing so. The OT encourages effective information sharing between partners, facilitates the planning of meetings and workshops, compiles all outputs produced, and actively participates in the Biodiversa+ e-platform (communication and outreach).


Ensuring the operational implementation of the Biodiversa+ workplan, the Operational Team is composed of 9 officers.
