Through the projects and studies they finance, public development banks assist their clients in producing flora and fauna observation data, which represents a valuable asset in maintaining biodiversity in developing countries. Since data are not published, they are currently largely underexploited.
By using very few resources, public development banks and their clients can easily make the collected data accessible to scientists and other users (policy makers, environmental agencies, consultants, etc.) and thus contribute not only to the fight against the erosion of biodiversity, but also to sustainable development in sectors such as food security, climate change and human health.
