The biodiversity informatics project will review and evaluate policies for catalysing biodiversity informatics in Sub-Saharan Africa. Identification of commonalities and differences between the countries will be used to develop broader best-practice guidelines throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
This will be achieved through:
-Content analysis and polices literature review pertaining to biodiversity informatics
-Production and dissemination of appropriate guidance packages.
The successful completion of the project will have impact on countries in Sub-Saharan Africa through the design of appropriate policies that will promote data sharing and biodiversity information for conservation decisions.
