The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), funded by the European Union, is calling for proposals from sub-Saharan Africa for the Biodiversity Information for Development (BID) Programme. The program seeks to support projects from sub-Saharan Africa that mobilize biodiversity data relating to protected areas, threatened species, and invasive alien species.
The grant funding will assist in establishing and strengthening national biodiversity information facilities and to increase the biodiversity data available about the country to respond to national priorities.
Sub-Saharan countries are encouraged to apply for this opportunity. For more information, visit The Global Biodiversity Information Facility website. Deadline for initial concept notes is 9 April 2017.
