Campaigns are an important new instrument for GBIF to achieve extended societal and
scientific benefits with biodiversity data, and go beyond what the GBIF work
programme and budget can reach.
According to its Strategic Plan, GBIF during 2007-2011 will conduct campaigns that bring together data users, data providers and funders to work together and design projects that synergistically serve everyone. A GBIF Campaign is a project, or set of projects, that bring together a range of collaborators with a goal of developing a specific product that meet the needs of a well-defined user group. This product will be taxonomically, thematically, and/or geographically focused.
GBIF does not fund Campaigns from the Work Programme budget, except for limited costs necessary for the earliest stages of their initiation. For all other expenses, the Campaigns must raise sufficient funding.
