Abstract

Biodiversa+, the European Biodiversity Partnership, has compiled a mapping of the ministries and other organisations that fund and steer national and sub-national biodiversity monitoring schemes across the network that involves active partners currently from 23 countries. Those countries cover most of the Member States in the EU, but not all; in addition, a few non-EU countries are also partner of the network. This report summarises the outcomes of the questionnaires and interviews about the state-of-the-art of biodiversity monitoring governance in those countries based on the responses from the ministries of the environment and environmental protection agencies. In most countries, Ministries of Environment and/or Environmental Protection Agencies are the actors in charge of steering and governing biodiversity monitoring schemes. Biodiversity governance is split by realms (e.g., terrestrial and aquatic) in 2/3 of the countries. An overview of biodiversity monitoring in each country is provided. Information about key organisations in charge of biodiversity monitoring is presented as well as the coverage of realms by those organisations. Also, the complexity of data gathering networks and the role of volunteers is reported when such data is available, and solutions and/or challenges in data availability or workflows are described. Finally, information on the budget and financing of the biodiversity monitoring schemes is reported. This mapping exercise will be useful in supporting the set-up of a European Biodiversity Observation Network and the development of an EU Biodiversity Monitoring Coordination Centre and its national and, when relevant, sub-national counterparts, leading therefore to improved biodiversity monitoring in Europe across all taxa and realms in space and time.
