Biodiversity Information Office
The establishment of a Biodiversity Information Office (BIO) provides a cost-effective system to capture, store, curate, publish and analyse biodiversity data throughout WA. BIO and the Environmental Online initiative complement and streamline environmental assessment and approval processes in Western Australia.
Making data available to industry and environmental assessment officers will facilitate better up-front decision making, reduce duplication and cost, and result in better assessment standards and processes. Both Environment Online and BIO are linked under the Digital Environmental Assessment Program.
