Development and funding agencies
CEPDEC is a multi-stakeholder approach to helping developing countries gain access to, and learn how to utilise, information about biological diversity that is held in the world’s natural history collections, observational databases, and literature. It focuses on developing capacity and tools to aid decision makers in a selected group of developing countries. It builds upon the efforts of many of the world’s governments and scientists who have joined together to form the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), a gateway to a wide range of biodiversity information from around the world. By leveraging the already-existing funding for GBIF, CEPDEC is able to relatively quickly provide key human and computing resources, including targeted training activities.
