BID: Biodiversity Information for Development
Biodiversity Information for Development (BID) is a multi-year, €3.9 million programme funded by the European Union and led by GBIF—the Global Biodiversity Information Facility—with the aim of increasing the amount of biodiversity information available for use in scientific research and policymaking in the ‘ACP’ nations of sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific.
The first phase of project funding from BID provided nearly €1 million to 23 projects in sub-Saharan Africa. Recipients include 34 organizations from 20 African countries. The second phase of the project provided €312,000 to eight projects from seven countries in the Caribbean and €375,000 to five projects from seven countries in the Pacific. The third and final phase of the project provided €707,000 to 27 projects from 17 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. See all the projects.
This programme is funded by the European Union.
