Project Data

The objectives of the project are: Set up the structures and infrastructure to achieve the data flow between the main data holding institutions Process and digitize data to be disseminated in a structural way to the SMIN Create a knowledge and information platform where data will be mobilized and integrated to promote environmental planning and policy-making nationally

Title Implementing biodiversity data flow on the national level by creating data structures between BBS, NZCS/CMO and NIMOS within the Suriname Environmental Information Network (SMIN)
Identifier BID-CA2020-008-USE
Funding EU funded project Co-funding will be provided by the UTSN project, implemented by the National Zoological Collection Suriname (NZCS/CMO)
Study Area Description Collections of the National Herbarium of Suriname (BBS) and the National Zoological Collection Suriname (NZCS/CMO) Environmental data, namely mercury occurrences in fresh water areas in Suriname
Design Description Activities: Create workflow or process model for data mobilization to streamline the activities within the consortium Develop and manage databases at BBS, NZCS/CMO and NIMOS Evaluate protocols and interim reports according to the implementation plan. Results: Datasets with collections data and images, digitized and added to the databases at BBS, NZCS/CMO and NIMOS Databases at institutional level that are interoperable with national and regional databases The deliverables that will be evaluated include among others metadata for flora and fauna, data summary tables, and species distributions map products
