IABIN Data and Services in The Americas
IABIN Data and Metadata Content Grants
IABIN Standards and Protocols
IABIN Data QA-QC
IABIN Services and Interoperability
Evolve towards an integrated contributed network to bolster a wide range of biodiversity Web-based knowledge resources, thereby expanding IABIN user community in The Americas.
IABIN Revamped Mission
Support smooth interaction with a large and diverse variety of independent biodiversity institutions of data sources and legacy applications, running on distributed platforms into a contributed web-based network approach. As a result, IABIN endeavor is to building and managing cooperative information systems through integrated databases, biodiversity knowledge-based systems, groupwares, data workflows, and geographical user interfaces. IABIN will also have to be intelligently interfaced with web based application software, and will need to be dynamically integrated into customized and highly connected cooperative environments in The Americas.
Such interactions may involve intuitive navigation, publishing, querying and retrieval, workflow analyses, on line education and will have to be combined with the needs of IABIN end-users, countries, conventions, mechanisms about biodiversity and climate change adaptation and mitigation.
IABIN should position itself to become the premier vehicle for evidence based conservation in the Americas
SSTN 3,441,157 records
ETN 1,885,790 records
I3N 1,926 records
PATN 7,042 records
PTN 17,067 records
A significant amount of tools have been developed and standardized biodiversity and conservation data has been integrated through the support of IABIN GEF Phase I funding. These products are now ready for use to support national and regional decision making processes.
IABIN II funding will be used to ensure efficient access to all IABIN TN data and tools for National and Regional Planning Processes, implementation of international conventions, and continued support for scientific inquiry and conservation applications across Latin America and the Caribbean.

IABIN Regional Showcase of the GEF 1 Project
The specific objective of the project is to create a global facility to collect, catalogue, search and access information on the world’s protected areas and their management, and support epistemic communities working together to address conservation topics.
This publicly accessible knowledge-base would feature rapid search capabilities, the ability to organize information in a variety of ways (e.g., visual information such as maps, remote sensing imagery and photographs, text, and numeric data).
Data would be linked to online web logs and/or chat facilities, using a distributed management model, with helpdesk functionality and the ability for users to contribute additional information. These elements will produce an interactive global knowledge base designed to keep professionals in touch with one another between meetings and training sessions to share knowledge and to solve problems
Our goal is to improve transparency and rigor in decision-making and governance of a complex bio/geo/socio-economic system. Our objective is create a more transparent, rigorous, and publicly accessible decision making process through the provision of data and the development of models using the data to describe a range of scenarios describing alternative futures for South America based upon different combinations of driving forces (e.g., moderate and predictable climate change combined with large-scale hydropower development and most road corridors, or extreme climate change combined with limited hydropower development and major multimodal transportation corridors).
These scenarios will be developed through a series of workshops bringing together regional and global experts on all aspects of the IIRSA program, including engineers, hydrologists, environmental planners, biodiversity experts, climate modelers and climate adaptation specialists, environmental health experts and epidemiologists, demographers, and specialists in social and economic development, including indigenous peoples representatives. The product of these workshops will be a series of alternative futures.
