Introduction to the survey

Biodiversity Information for Development (BID) is a 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 the Caribbean. What financial or technical challenges do you face in sharing data for use in research and policy?

The thirteen-question survey starts on page three and will take around 20 minutes to answer. Please submit your filled survey at your earliest convenience.  A parallel survey for decision makers can be found here. You can also find an off-line version of this survey here.
