de Territorio y Sostenibilidad de la Diputación de Barcelona, the Dirección General de Políticas Ambientales de la Generalitat de Cataluña in collaboration with the Spanish GBIF Node.
The objective of this meeting was to gather together technicians of the public government that work with different aspects of the biodiversity information, for providing the common share and
integration of data and information about biodiversity and the search of common solutions. This year the meeting was focused on the role that public environmental administrations must have facing the
information provided by citizen science initiatives. Technicians from five different regions attended the conference (Aragon, Catalonia, Valencia, Navarra and the Basque Country), as well
as representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment, NGOâ€™s, GBIF Nodes of Andorra and Spain and different citizen science associations, among others.
