Regional Environment and Information Management Project (REIMP)

Project Summary

This project establishes a demand-driven, action-oriented environmental information database for the tropical forest region of central Africa to support decision-making and to build up national capacity for environmental monitoring, land-use planning, and conservation priority setting. Strong emphasis will be put on capacity building in the public and private sectors to use such data, on creating an integrated, standardized regional information network for data sharing, on connecting data suppliers and users to the electronic highway, and on defining and developing specific products desired by end users.
