Aim of the Project:

NetBiome-CSA starts from an existing biodiversity research partnership based on ORs and OCTs, focused on financing high quality research, and takes on the challenge of mobilizing further stakeholders at all the levels of the quadruple helix (knowledge institutions, enterprises, government and civil society) in order to identify, and then to address, perceived priority challenges in conciliating conservation and sustainable management of tropical biodiversity with the sustainable development of Europe’s regions and territories, based on the benefits from high biodiversity. In doing so, NetBiome-CSA facilitated improved knowledge transfer and uptake, provided appropriate tools and models to manage information and data for policymakers, and raise awareness of natural resources, including raw materials.

Through a participative process, the objective was to mobilize stakeholders, their knowledge and resources for initiatives such as policy and priority analysis, multi-stakeholder dialogues, exchange of good practices, training and issuing of recommendations to promote a smart and sustainable management of tropical and subtropical biodiversity in outermost regions and overseas countries and territories.
