Learn how ArcGIS supports the UN Global Biodiversity Framework

The Esri Conservation Team is thrilled at the opportunities presented by the Post-2020 Kunming-Montreal UN Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF). In our assessment the GBF targets present an unprecedented opportunity to consistently advance global conservation efforts. Since many of the targets are explicitly spatial, our teams have been working to clarify how best apply ArcGIS towards the monitoring of the GBF. ArcGIS is the most widely utilized GIS in the world supporting the work of thousands of conservation organizations globally. To support this community we’ve developed a four-part webinar series dedicated leveraging ArcGIS towards specific targets in the GBF.
