"The project “NetBiome” was further emphasised as it promotes research for biodiversity in support of sustainable development. It was explained that this partnership is maintained by a CSA and the project will end in April with the partnership ending with it. It was called upon the EU to sign a memorandum of understanding in order to maintain this partnership outside the current funding by the EU. The importance of maintaining partnerships that already exists was stressed as they help generate local knowledge of biodiversity."
