In France, the Law on Reclaiming Biodiversity, Nature and Landscapes has required public and private contracting authorities to contribute to the inventory of natural heritage since 2016. In this way France is a pioneer in its use of the
biodiversity data produced by development projects and impact assessments.
Development actors and their counterparts produce a substantial amount of data, which are usually used in relation to the projects themselves. Yet it is essential to publish and provide open access to this data for a better understanding of natural ecosystems, in order to preserve them.
It is time for all development actors to catch up... The Data4Nature initiative encourages everyone to use and share data related to nature. Understanding biodiversity better, means we’re better prepared to protect it.
