Call for proposals
Sub-Saharan Africa, 2015
Note: This call is now closed | view selected projects
The deadline for submitting initial concept notes from sub-Saharan Africa was 20 November 2015. GBIF and its evaluation panel invited a selected number of applicants to submit full proposals in February 2016 and expect to announce project selections in April 2016.
This call supports projects from sub-Saharan Africa that:
- Mobilize biodiversity data relating to protected areas, threatened species, and invasive alien species
- Use and extend best practices for digitizing natural history collections and mobilizing other biodiversity data
- Apply biodiversity data in support of decision-making and research
- Develop lasting national, regional or thematic networks to support ongoing data sharing and reuse
The call offers support for three grant types
A second and final call for proposals to support countries in sub-Saharan Africa is planned for 2017.
This programme is funded by the European Union.
