Capacity assessment survey

Capacity Assessment Survey

  • The Questionnaire

  • Who it was sent to

  • Results of the responses received


Capacity assessment questionnaire

Capacity Assessment Questionnaire.

  • Type of research

  • Who are the consumers/ end-users of your taxonomic information/ products

  • Major research institutions in your country working in different areas (Bio & Tax…….)

  • What networks exist in your country/ region that could help promote taxonomic & biodiversity research

  • What are the obstacles that limit collaboration/biodiversity research with other countries


Capacity assessment questionnaire ctd

Capacity Assessment Questionnaire Ctd.

  • Is your department or institution involved in molecular genetics work ?

  • Do you have national / institutional regulatory policies for sharing of taxonomic information?

  • Do you have national / institutional regulatory policies on the lending of biological specimens to other institutions in your country

  • Do you have national/ institutional regulatory policies on the lending of biological specimens to institutions in other countries?


Capacity assessment questionnaire ctd1

Capacity Assessment Questionnaire Ctd.

  • Describe very briefly the speed and reliability of the internet access in your home institution.

  • Describe very briefly the adequacy/ inadequacy of your library facilities and your access to current literature.

2 who are the consumers end users of your taxonomic information products

2. Who are the consumers/ end-users of your taxonomic information/ products

Most Common

Government departments and institutes

Decision-makers

Universities (local & international,

Researchers, students

Also:

Industry, NGOs, Crop Producers,

Protected area managers, police/ regulatory agencies,

Amateur scientists, general public


5 obstacles to collaboration in taxonomy and biodiversity research in the region

5. Obstacles to collaboration in taxonomy and biodiversity research in the region

Most Common response:

Funding, especially long-term

Trained professionals

Career opportunities

Capacity

Also

Isolation, lack of connections to international and local networks

Restrictions on specimen export


5 obstacles to collaboration in taxonomy and biodiversity research in the region1

5. Obstacles to collaboration in taxonomy and biodiversity research in the region

Other responses:

Lack of regional research program

Lack of communication channels between researchers of the region

Lack of regional research policy

Unreliable internet communications


7 national or institutional policies on sharing of taxonomic information

7. National or Institutional Policies on Sharing of Taxonomic Information

3 Countries have policies

But policies have no negative impact on research

8.National or Institutional Policies on Lending Specimens Within Country

5 Countries have policies with no negative impact on research


9 national or institutional policies on lending specimens to other countries

9. National or Institutional Policies on Lending Specimens to Other Countries

3 Countries have policies

Varied with no negative impact

10.Speed and Reliability of Internet Access

Reasonably fast, adequate, reliable: Most countries

When functional, not reliable in the least; Presently out of use

Limited reliability: 1 country
