Introduction to the survey

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.

Decision makers depend on high-quality biodiversity information to support planning and policy and to encourage world-class research.

This survey seeks the opinions of decision makers from ACP countries in Africa. How well do you feel that your information needs are currently served?

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 data holders can be found here.
