GBIF, the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, an international network and data infrastructure funded by the world's governments and aimed at providing open access to data, announced the launch of a new task group to address data challenges revealed by the IPBES Invasive Species Assessment Report, including national needs for tracking progress toward reducing impacts of invasive alien species

"The task group recommended by the GBIF Science Committee, and endorsed by the GBIF Executive Committee will review recent developments in the science-policy interface relating to invasive alien species, and recommend actions for GBIF that will best address the needs of data users. These developments include not just the IPBES Assessment but also the needs of governments to track progress towards Target 6 of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF), relating to preventing or reducing the introduction and establishment of invasive alien species," stated the organization via a press release.
