Refining priorities and needs for adequate coverage

One of the objectives of Biodiversa+ is to identify, refine and address priorities to better support research, society and policy needs. Priorities are topics that guide Biodiversa+ activities related to promotion and support of transnational biodiversity monitoring.

In 2023, priorities have been extended to include “Urban Biodiversity”, “Bats”, “Genomics & Genetics”, “Wetlands”, and “Common Species”. Finally, there is one additional special topic for “Transversal Activities”.
