GBIF community webinars aim to improve sustained communication and interaction between the Secretariat and the broader GBIF community, particularly (but not exclusively) the GBIF nodes. By keeping a keen eye on new projects and initiatives within the context of the GBIF strategic plan and annual work programme and implementation plan, we hope that these discussions spark new collaboration and engagement opportunities across the network.
