Project Data

South Sudan is home to a wealth of biological resources of considerable economic, social and intrinsic value. Biological diversity constitutes a foundation of South Sudan’s socio-economic development, as a large proportion of the population depends entirely on these resources for goods and services. The National Biodiversity Database System (NBDS) project will contribute to the development, maintenance and update of a biodiversity facility, mobilizing data and information for different users to aid reporting and decision-making related to sustainable biodiversity conservation and management in South Sudan and beyond. During the project, the team will undertake a nationwide assessment of biodiversity data, data holders and users to develop a mobilization strategy to ensure the continued sustainability of facility. The project will also ensure relevant training to biodiversity stakeholders on tailored dissemination of information for greater impact. The project will contribute to the Environmental Information Management system (EIMS) and the Biodiversity, Biosafety and Access and Benefit sharing (ABS) Clearing House Mechanisms (CHMs), the IGAD Regional Biodiversity Database System and GBIF.org thus increasing the biodiversity visibility and knowledge nationally, regionally and globally.
