Kafa Biosphere Reserve (KBR) is a home to the last surviving moist evergreen montane forests in the eastern Afromontane biodiversity hotspot. This biosphere reserve covers an area of more than 7500 km², of which 47 per cent is covered with forests. Origin and center of Coffea arabica’s genetic diversity, KBR serves as a globally significant in situ gene bank. While the fauna and flora of KBR and other parts of southwestern Ethiopia have been studied to some degree, data remains unorganized and inaccessible to local and international researchers and conservationists, in part due to a lack of personnel trained in biodiversity information management. Led by researchers from Jimma University, this project will establish a regional database for fauna and flora of the protected areas of the KBR and the southwestern region of Ethiopia. The establishment of this online database will provide access to all available species, serving as a biodiversity information hub. In addition, the team will establish a biodiversity information management and training center to provide knowledge to relevant stakeholders in Ethiopia on data management, quality and use.
