Climate & Environmental Data Session

The climate and environmental data (CED) listening session will focus on data that aligns broadly with the abiotic (non-living) environment that may be experienced by organisms, which includes, but is not limited to, climate, soils, and hydrological data.

During this session, we aim to have discussions centered around CED with the following goals in mind:

  • Gaining an understanding of the state of current data infrastructure and the ultimate goals of the CED community.
  • Determining common data priorities as it pertains to CED.
  • Discussing advantages, disadvantages, and challenges associated with an integrated data network.
  • Identifying additional stakeholders that should be engaged in future discussions of an integrated data network.

Following the listening session, discussion will be summarized in a report that will be made publicly available for comment. We encourage all those interested to provide feedback and additional insights on this summary. This document will provide the foundation for building a roadmap for moving forward with the development of an integrated data network.
