The Jacob Robert Schramm (JRS) Biodiversity Foundation has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for multi-year projects focused on biodiversity data, knowledge and information services related to freshwater biodiversity and pollinator biodiversity in eastern and southern Africa.

The Foundation’s focus areas are on:
- Collecting and enhancing data
- Aggregating, synthesising, and publishing data
- Making data more widely available to potential end users, and interpreting and gaining insights from species occurrence and distribution data to inform policy and conservation of biodiversity.
The call is limited to eastern and southern African countries, for more information on eligibility and how to apply visit the JRS Biodiversity Foundation website. Deadline for applications is 16 February 2016
