This eight volume series, developed for use by decision-makers, mid-career professionals, and interested parties, reviews the issues and processes involved in the management of biodiversity information to support the conservation and sustainable use of living resources. They also provide a framework for the development of national plans and strategies and for meeting reporting obligations of international programmes and conventions.
The handbooks may be used as a training resource or, more generally, to support institutions and networks involved in building capacity in information management.
Representing three-years work, these handbooks were supported by the EU, UNEP, European Environment Agency, through the United Kingdom's Darwin Initiative for the Survival of Species and published through the generous support of the Commonwealth Secretariat.
