     · "At the center of the UN Biodiversity Lab is a partnership between UNDP and UN Environment

      to provide high quality data for government representatives. UNDP and UN Environment’s direct

     engagement with over 140 governments allows for dynamic updates to the platform based on actual

     user needs. Likewise, engagement with 15 technical partners and data providers ensures the provision

     of cutting-edge data to take action for sustainable development. The UN Biodiversity Lab is not just

     another website; it is a platform for building partnerships among data providers and data users to

     ensure that governments have access and capacity to use cutting-edge spatial data to make key

     conservation and development decisions."
