Feasibility study for a harmonised information management infrastructure for biodiversity-related treaties (1998)

UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) (1998)

The five biodiversity-related treaty secretariats and UNEP commissioned WCMC to undertake a Feasibility Study to identify opportunities for harmonising information management. The study responds to the growing realisation that decisions on development and sustainability depend on access to well organised information, and that the secretariats could collaborate more closely to gain synergies, avoid duplication and reduce the burden of reporting carried out by the Parties to the conventions.
