ISC and its partners organised the 9th edition of the Science Summit around the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA78) on 12-29 September 2023.
The role and contribution of science to attaining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be the central theme of the Summit. The objective is to develop and launch science collaborations to demonstrate global science mechanisms and activities to support the attainment of the UN SDGs, Agenda 2030 and Local2030. The meeting will also prepare input for the United Nations Summit of the Future, which will take place during UNGA79 beginning on 12 September 2024.

[VIRTUAL] FAIR Biodiversity monitoring and research in Latin America considering the influence of commercial services, global data systems and new technologies (280902)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Bringing together Latin American specialists on the generation, curation and use of biodiversity data, we aim to discuss the common challenges (across countries and biological habitats and systems) for the funding, production, mobilization and use of good quality FAIR data in addressing the sustainable development goals (including goals 12: Sustainable consumption and production 13: Climate Action; 14: Oceans; 15: Biodiversity, forests, desertification 17: Partnerships (Technology).

1) Jonathan Ready (convener) - The long-term risks of black box consultancy for environmental monitoring
2) Angelica Batista Morales - Data mobilization through FW BON: challenges and opportunities
3) Patricia Charvet - Keystone predators: biodiversity and conservation in the light of fisheries pressure
4) Martin Nunez - Invasive species biodiversity data: lack of data and the asymmetries of data amount with the global north
5) Cristina Rueda Uribe - Using and sharing big data: opportunities in tropical mountain ecosystems
6) Alexandre Aleixo - FAIR data from commercially supported research
