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
