  • Context

  • A national alliance

  • Sharing biodiversity information

    • Quality and accesibility of data

    • Controlled vocabulary for researchers

    • Information for multiple purposes: research and decision making

  • Building and strenghting national capacities

  • Colombia, the region, the world

  • Intellectual Property Rights

An Overview to the Context in Information Sharing of Colombia

  • A scientific tradition of more than 200 years

  • Megadiversity

  • Biological collections, databases, publications

  • It means an enormous ammount of data and information

  • Strong environmental legislation

  • Complex institutional landscape:

    • Environmental authorities (policy and decision makers)

    • Science and technology system

    • Other sectors of society (both public and private)


Alexander von humboldt biological resources research institute coordinator institution

Mission

To promote, coordinate and make research that contributes to the knowledge, conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in Colombia

One of its functions

The implementation of an information system, as a supporting tool for the National Biodiversity Inventory


Alexander von humboldt biological resources research institute coordinator institution

Our strategy to implement the system

To encourage alliances with agencies, researchers and authorities to build a National Information Network:

Biodiversity Information System of Colombia


Alexander von humboldt biological resources research institute coordinator institution

  • What are we doing?

    • Making available a broad range of information resources by providing tools to facilitate access, sharing and use of biodiversity data

    • These advances are being available nationally and internationally

  • How are we achieving this?

    • By promoting a cultural change towards the open sharing of data:

      • Confidence and transparency

      • Intellectual property rights (Creative Commons)

      • Clear rules and policies for data sharing

      • Distributed ownership (equal opportunities for contribution and participation)


Sib today our vision

SIB today – Our vision

The Biodiversity Information System of Colombia (SiB) is anational alliancedeveloped to facilitatedata and information management. We seek to efficiently supportresearch, education and decision making processes related to knowledge, conservation and sustainableuse of the biodiversity of Colombia


Alexander von humboldt biological resources research institute coordinator institution

  • Biological Characterizations

  • Protected Areas

  • Threatened species Conservation

  • Traditional knowledge and uses of biodiversity

  • Access to genetic resources

  • Design of policies and strategies

  • Research Processes

  • Research Institutes

  • Biological Collections

  • Universities

  • NGOs

More than an Information Facility, SiB is a knowledge community: supporting not only research / decision making processes, but providing tools for the scientific community and the decision makers. We do that by strenghting the decision makers capacities in handling and using information, as well as the tools available
