JRS News and Happenings

Dear Colleagues,

We're happy to share this compilation of news from the JRS Biodiversity Foundation and our grantees that we've posted this year.

JRS has a commitment to share what we're learning from our grantees. In that spirit, we publish the report highlighted below titled "Show me the Data."  We hope that this is the first of many such publications from JRS and we welcome your comments and ideas.

JRS REPORT RELEASE
 
Show Me the Data!
We are pleased to announce the release of a study we commissioned on the accessibility of JRS grantee data. In 2014, JRS contracted Jante LLC to conduct an independent review of expected data products from 49 JRS-funded projects. The results suggested that biodiversity information was less discoverable and accessible than hoped. However, interviews with grantees provided the framework for a set of recommendations to projects with data-sharing goals, and formed the basis for a new JRS Data Sharing Policy. Read more here.

DATA PRODUCTS AND RELEASES
 
Making Biodiversity Data Available
JRS grantees have released a number of new data products this year, documenting both historic biodiversity, and ongoing global changes. Read about each of the projects below on the JRS news site:
CONFERENCES AND MEETINGS
 
Meetings of the (Biodiversity) Minds
Conferences and workshops advance the JRS mission by facilitating collaboration and networking of biodiversity information professionals. In May, Africa Rising: Mobilizing biodiversity data for sustainable development, funded in part by JRS, convened in Cape Town, South Africa with 100 delegates representing 21 African countries. The conference launched GBIF-led Biodiversity Information for Development, aimed at exploring ways to connect data generators to data users in the biodiversity data lifecycle (News Item).

Still upcoming is the Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG) conference in Nairobi, Kenya (Sep 28-Oct 1). This os the first time the meeting will be held in Africa (read here), an effort supported by JRS with the goal of increasing the African voice in discussions about using biodiversity data in conservation.
