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?
