Launching GBIF Namibia

Add to calendar
16 November 2021

The aim of this workshop was to promote GBIF with the major stakeholders, especially in terms of data-holders and -users, and to make the nation aware of the planned activities of the node over the coming years. Despite many Namibian institutions being skeptical of data-sharing and international bodies "interfering" in local research or conservation, the launching of the new node was exceedingly well-received. Several of the key individuals from the major research and conservation institutions have expressed their interest in working with the Node in future, in terms of contributing data, launching collaborative projects, and aiding with national decisions as part of the node in future.
