Capacity Building

The quest to expand our knowledge about biological diversity holds inherent challenges. While most species are located in tropical areas, financial resources and technical capacity are severely lacking outside the developed world. Thus, it is critically important to pursue science while also making technological advances more widely available and building the skills necessary to carry out integrative research. As far as possible, all DIVERSITAS activities will be designed to support direct involvement of scientists from all regions of the world.

DIVERSITAS currently pursues capacity building opportunities by collaborating with organisations dedicated to this cause, including:

  • Asia Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN)
  • European Network for Research on Global Change (ENRICH)
  • Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI)
  • SysTem for Analysis, Research and Training (START)
  • Tropical Biology Association (TBA)
  • United National Environment Programme (UNEP)
  • Watson Institute for International Studies
