Biodiversity Information for Development (BID) is a new multi-year programme funded by the European Union and led by GBIF. Its aim is to increase the amount and use of biodiversity information in the ‘ACP’ nations of sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific.
GBIF is seeking input from two stakeholder groups critical to the long-term success of the BID programme—data holders and decision makers.
Data holders need resources and incentives to distribute the many types of information that they steward.
This survey seeks the opinions of data holders from ACP countries in Africa. What financial or technical challenges do you face in sharing data for use in research and policy?
The seven-question survey will take around 20 minutes to answer. Please submit your filled survey at your earliest convenience. An offline version of this survey is available if you prefer to use that mechanism. A parallel survey for decision makers can be found here.
