A data repository for biodiversity and protected areas

The BIOPAMA project aims to build a solid information base for decision making on protected areas in the Africa, Caribbean, Pacific (ACP) region. This repository, based on GeoNode, is part of the BIOPAMA Reference Information System. Here you can discover and use maps, reports, data and other information sources, and upload your own to share with others. The themes of data you can find here cover a broad range of natural resource management and related topics.

The core development is done by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, based in Italy. Our project partners IUCN are working across the Africa, Caribbean, Pacific (ACP) region, and their programme officers and technical officers are working with regional institutions to set up regional observatories.

The BIOPAMA project began in July 2011 and will run until 2016. It is closely linked to the development of the Digital Observatory of Protected Areas (DOPA), which provides harmonised indiactors and data on protected areas globally. JRC and IUCN are now working with our institutional partners to ensure the long-term sustainability of the Observatories and the Reference Information System. You can find out more about BIOPAMA at the main project page www.biopama.org.
