In April 2015, the GBIF Secretariat and Bioversity International created a ‘Task Group on Data Fitness for Use in Agrobiodiversity’ to improve the quality and quantity of data on the GBIF portal that are important to agricultural biodiversity research and policy communities. These include data on agricultural biodiversity monitoring, gaps in conservation, crop wild relatives, collections and genebank inventories, crop suitability index and more. The Norwegian GBIF node was invited and accepted to be a member of this task group.
