BID: Biodiversity Information for Development
BID is a multi-year programme funded by the European Union and led by GBIF that aims to enhance capacity to mobilize and use biodiversity data effectively in research and policy in sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific.
This programme aims to address specific capacity needs identified by GBIF Participants, facilitating collaboration at regional and global levels by providing co-funding for projects focused on mentoring activities, regional training workshops and documentation.
Funded by the Finnish Biodiversity Information Facility (FinBIF), the GBIF national node for Finland, this programme supports projects that mobilize biodiversity data and promote regional training and capacity-building activities around data publishing.
