This workshop was organized as part of the 2011 International Joint Meeting of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation & Africa Section of the Society for Conservation Biology.
The Tanzania Commission for Science and Technology (COSTECH) in collaboration with the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) and the Central African Biodiversity Information Network (CABIN) and other national and international partners are developing an online information tool to support policy and decision making process on biodiversity and its related issues. The informatics tool will enable analysis and modelling of primary biodiversity data to support (biodiversity related) decision making activities such as land use planning, design of protected areas, risk assessment among others. The tool will allow users to perform meaningful analysis by integrating and using biodiversity data (including occurrence data, species-level data/ecosystem data) in combination with other type of data (geospatial, climatic, demographic, economic datasets).
