Following the 2009 meeting of the European Biodiversity Clearing House network,  the establishment of a Biodiversity Information System for Europe is to be organised on the EC-CHM portal. This work will make further use of the proposed common glossary to be translated in all European languages and syndication amongst national portals and of the updated version  of the EC-CHM toolkit, which is freely available to countries all over the world for the establishment of their national portals and its presentation to COP 10 of the Convention of Biological Diversity
