Haiti is placed within the Caribbean Islands Biodiversity Hotspot, one of the world’s greatest centers of unique flora and fauna. Currently, there exist large gaps in the biodiversity information available for the country, and over 70% of the records shared through the GBIF network are published by institutions outside Haiti. Promoting data mobilization from institutions within the country is key to increasing availability of information that can be used to plan and carry out in-situ conservation actions.

To increase the capacity of Haitian institutions to share data, the Cayes Botanical Garden of Haiti in collaboration with Mentors from the GBIF community, is organizing a Biodiversity Data Mobilization training workshop, focused on the workflow and tools necessary for sharing biodiversity data through the GBIF network, as well as on key concepts about biodiversity data standards and data quality.

The training will be held mixing virtual and on-site components and will train over 20 people from institutions across the country.
