CEBioS is launching a call for projects for valorising existing data and establishing biodiversity indicators around protected areas.

This call aims at promoting links between the worlds of science and policy in order to develop such biodiversity indicators in the buffer zones of protected areas in English-speaking countries that are partners of the Belgian development cooperation.

All information about the call can be found here: http://www.biodiv.be/cebios2/calls/mrv-calls/2018-mrv-call.

This call is open to the following countries: Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria, Palestinian Territory, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda.

The project should be submitted by a partnership between two institutions:

1) a national institute, research centre or public university able to collect and provide the needed data;

2) a governmental institution (ministry, local government,…), a structure in charge of the management of the protected area or an NGO, able to apply the data or indicators to the follow-up of the NBSAP, local action plans or management plans addressing the buffer zone of the protected area.

Projects should be submitted by 17 December 2017 to the following address: cbd-mrv@naturalsciences.be.
