Global Knowledge Support Service

Throughout the negotiations of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) have noted the need for national level capacity-building, and technical and scientific cooperation to enhance the generation, monitoring, reporting and assessment of data, information, and knowledge to support the effective implementation of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework. This includes a proposed initiative for a “global knowledge centre for biodiversity” to provide a matchmaking service to support the monitoring, reporting and review of progress towards the global goals and targets (see CBD/SBI/REC/3/10). It is aiming to support ‘enhanced cooperation and collaboration’ on data, methods and tools at national, regional and global levels.
