Folder About the European Biodiversity Clearing-House Mechanism Network

The Europen Biodiversity Clearing House Mechanism (EC-CHM) network site is managed by the European Environment Agency, as part of the Biodiversity Information System for Europe - BISE. While BISE is the main portal serving as the EU Clearing House Mechanism, this site is maintained as a discussion forum and a clearing house for biodiversity information from national CHMs, international conventions and initiatives from the whole of the European continent.

The objective of the European Biodiversity CHM network is to promote technical cooperation and technology transfer within the Pan European Region and the rest of the world.

This web application has been based on software developed by the EEA, named EC- CHM Tool Kit version 2, which  can be used free of charge, see section EC CHM Tools.
