MyCOE / SERVIR Fellow - Mentor Program for GIS and Biodiversity in Africa
Interdisciplinary and multi-sectoral teams of university students and their mentors are using geographic techniques for research applications around protected areas, threatened species, and conservation in Africa. This program has worked to build the geographic technology capacity in Africa to protect biodiversity using GIS, remote sensing, and geospatial analytical techniques designed for such applications. The effort also helped to strengthen collaboration among the region’s universities, government environmental authorities, and NGOs to encourage multi-institutional and international approaches that address biodiversity and conservation with geography.
