13 / 03 / 2017, GBIF

GBIF invites the submission of proposals for project funding from sub-Saharan Africa for the Biodiversity Information for Development (BID) programme. The deadline for submission of concept-notes is 9 April 2017.

This call, like those that preceded it, seeks projects that will:

  • Mobilize biodiversity data relating to protected areas, threatened species, and invasive alien species
  • Use and extend best practices for digitizing natural history collections and mobilizing other biodiversity data
  • Apply biodiversity data in support of decision-making and research
  • Develop lasting national, regional or thematic networks to support ongoing data sharing and reuse
