Congo joined GBIF in 2011, and the head of the National Herbarium of Congo Brazzaville was appointed Node Manager.
The national node of Congo is based at the National Herbarium of Congo Brazaville, with a focus on Congo’s flora, including maintaining collections and a botanic garden, and supporting studies on traditional knowledge relating to the medicinal properties of plants and on ecosystem functioning to support land-use planning and sustainable use.
The node team consists of the Head of delegation, the Deputy Head of delegation and the Node Manager. There is no board for the node, but experts are available to be engaged in future activities.
There is currently no budget specifically allocated to the node’s activity.
