Basic Principles

Information networks, which are simply assemblages of individuals, groups and organisations with common information goals, overcome barriers to data access by focusing on the need for cooperation. They range in size from loose associations of individuals based upon personal contacts and historic ties, to actively managed consortia of government agencies, NGOs, scientists and private organisations, all with shared information goals. The aim is to build trust and confidence between the network's partners, who may include scientists, policy-makers and resource managers, leading to improved uptake of scientific information in policy and planning.
