Launch of first online Global Freshwater Biodiversity Atlas

Spatial information for water policy making and management

Launch of first online Global Freshwater Biodiversity Atlas

A new online Global Freshwater Biodiversity Atlas has been launched, presenting spatial information and species distribution patterns.

It provides policy-makers, water managers and scientists with an online, open-access and interactive gateway to key geographical information and spatial data on freshwater biodiversity at different scales. It is intended as a resource to  support better evidence-based decision making in the development of water policy, science and management.

The Atlas is an output of BioFresh – an EU-funded project that is bringing together scattered information about life in our rivers and lakes so that freshwater resources may be better understood, managed and protected for future generations.

UCL Geography is a partner on BioFresh and is contributing some datasets to the atlas.
