This webinar series organised by the European Business and Biodiversity Platform provides an overview of recent developments in the field of biodiversity data for businesses and financial institutions. The first three webinars will present examples of currently available and well-performing data sources on biodiversity impacts and dependencies, as well as innovative and promising biodiversity data collection techniques. Particular emphasis will be put on business applications, e.g. which type of internal decision-making can be supported by which data and which data collection techniques? Each of these webinars includes concrete examples on how businesses have applied biodiversity data. The final webinar will focus on remaining challenges and invites businesses to participate in a debate on how the accessibility, infrastructure and quality of data can be improved.
Webinar 2 will focus on the use of remote sensing as a specific source of biodiversity data. The remote sensing landscape evolves rapidly, making it an indispensable source of information in many domains. The large number, range and performance of sensors, platforms and applications implies that data collection through this state-of-the-art technique is more cost effective than many other classic data collection methods. The case of forest monitoring is illustrative here, as remote sensing has proven its worth in this domain and specific techniques are constantly being developed and improved. Remote sensing data is often combined with data collected through satellite linked telemetry devices. Telemetry is a valuable in-situ data collection method, which provides information on the behaviour of thousands of animals worldwide.
Each session will provide sufficient time for Q&A.
Dial-in details and the link to access the meeting will be shared with registered participants in due time. Registration is mandatory.
