General information and objectives

• To improve the supply and management of data and information in order to facilitate the attainment of IGBP's scientific goals.

Three component objectives have been defined for the period 1994 -1998:

• Carry out activities directly leading to the generation of datasets and other system components relevant to the needs of IGBP Core Projects

• Assist in the development of effective data management systems for Core Projects and for IGBP as a whole, thereby facilitating data exchange between Core Projects, the acquisition of data from other sources, and the wide distribution of IGBP datasets

• Contribute to the overall development of international and inter-agency data and information systems, particularly those of Earth-oriented space programmes, thereby ensuring that data and information relevant to IGBP are collected and made available with adequate continuity and quality.
