EASTERN & SOUTHERN AFRICA
The BIOPAMA data webinar series continues with a third webinar, focused on the practical collection and analysis of data to generate information products for specific policy needs, targeting specifically the context of the Eastern and Southern Africa region.
The webinar will take place on 7 May at 15h (GMT+2) and will address the question: how to bring together data from many different sources, to generate useful evidence for conservation and make it accessible to decision makers?
The BIOPAMA programme aims at improving the long-term conservation and sustainable development in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific countries. The better use and monitoring of information on biodiversity and protected areas is a key component of this programme. In Eastern and Southern Africa, IUCN and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission are working together with the Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD) to establish a Regional resource hub for protected areas and biodiversity. This regional resource hub will provide a variety of services to the regional conservation actors, including data analysis, products development for monitoring and reporting, and supporting decision-making in the region.
The speakers for this webinar include:
The Mapping Biodiversity Priorities project is funded by the Japan Biodiversity Fund within the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, and is managed by UN Environment-WCMC with support from SANBI.
