My role as a Senior Data Manager is a part of the EU funded Programme for the Preservation of Forest Ecosystems in West Africa (PAPFor) supporting the Greater Gola Landscape conservation in Sierra Leone and Liberia. Over the many years of conducting research activities RSPB and its international partners accumulated a large amount of numerical and spatial data related to the Gola rainforest.
My contribution is to create a transboundary biodiversity database and provide training to all project stockholders to ensure further use and sustainable development of a new data system.
