Dear all

I wanted to let you know that the BID programme generated great interest at the side event we organised on Tuesday at the UN Biodiversity Conference in Cancún, Mexico. It was well attended with a range of policy makers, experts and various international networks. There was real appreciation and excitement at the projects which I described in some detail, showing both the essential role being played by the support from around the GBIF community and examples of tangible results already evident including new data publishers registered in GBIF, new datasets online and new countries engaged in the network.

You can see details of the event, including the presentations, at this page http://www.gbif.org/event/82947. Feel free to re-use any slides from my presentation in your own materials.

Kind regards
