  1. Building a data-driven framework to inform policy Damiano Oldoni, Peter

    Desmet, Lien Reyserhove, Sonia Vanderhoeven, Tim Adriaens, Diederik Strubbe, Amy Davis, Quentin Groom
  2. Valuable decision support tools to inform invasive alien species (IAS)

    policy ➔ Information Systems ➔ Early warning initiatives ➔ Risk assessment protocols Once upon a time in Belgium ...
  3. Information system : ias.biodiversity.be

  4. Early warning initiatives : www.observations.be www.waarnemingen.be

  5. Risk assessment protocols

  6. But …. Large diversity of actors Fragmented data sources

  7. E.g. in Flanders

  8. E.g. in Flanders

  9. But …. Slow workflow from observation to science and policy

    Taxonomic, spatial and time limitation Large diversity of actors Fragmented data sources Closed data sources
  10. Timely evidence Automated workflow Transparency Standardization Reusability Sustainability What we

    needed ….
  11. The TrIAS-ycle

  12. • Checklists • Citizen science • Specimens • Public authorities

    1. Data
  13. 1. Data Checklists Occurrence sources

  14. • Standardize authoritative checklists mapping to DwC: • open, repeatable,

    customizable, documented • List published checklist • Mapping examples 1. Checklist data
  15. • Workflow 1. extract of all Belgian non-native taxa 2.

    unify taxonomy and related information • Open, repeatable, customizable, documented • Global Register of Introduced and Invasive Species - Belgium 1. Unify checklist
  16. • Unlock • Standardize • Publish • Do it open,

    repeatable, customizable, documented • List occurrence datasets 1. Occurrence data
  17. 2. Indicators • Checklist indicators • Data cube • Occurrence

    indicators
  18. 2. Indicators: checklist indicators • Number of new introductions per

    year • Cumulative number of introductions per year • Pathways of introduction
  19. 2. Indicators: data cube DATACUBE BELGIUM year taxa cell •

    1x1km2 cells • Occurrence data from GBIF • Taxa from unified checklist
  20. 2. Indicators: occurrence indicators • Emerging species detection • Emerging

    species: species increasing in number and/or distribution in Belgium
  21. 2. Indicators: occurrence indicators

  22. 3. Analysis • Risk mapping • Risk assessment

  23. 3. Analysis: workflow • Develop global scale climate-only species distribution

    models (SDMs) • Generate European level SDMs • Forecast species distributions under climate change scenarios
  24. 3. Analysis • Risk mapping • Risk assessment

  25. 4. Communication

  26. (technical) lessons learned from TrIAS

  27. • Contribute improving existing software: GBIF download API, rgbif package...

    • Make part of a bigger community called TDWG. • Check this issue about VRE Community
  28. Everything you do… do it: • open • repeatable •

    customizable • documented Philosophy
  29. None
