Biodiversity Data Management Capacitation in Developing Countries and Networking Biodiversity Information

Project Summary

The overall objective of the Biodiversity Data Management Project is to enhance the capacity of developing countries in data and biodiversity information management to support the implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity. It will conduct a national "institutional survey" which will report on the existing national capacity; prepare a "national plan" for the management and application of biodiversty data, develop a series of "basic guidelies" to support efficient information management; and a "resource inventory" of available methods and technologies which can be drawn upon to assist data management.
