THE BIODIVERSITY ATLAS OF KENYA

ABOUT PROJECT

Kenya hosts a wealth of data and information on its biodiversity and natural resources however the vast majority of these information is scattered across various institutions, with that do not lend themselves to sharing and integration. This hampers any efforts to give consolidated access to the information for purposes of further analysis and dissemination. This portal is an open access platform, hosting and supporting data generated from the Kenya’s Natural Capital- Biodiversity Atlas (2015). It gives access to other environmental socioeconomic and landcover change datasets, acquisition, storage, visualization, and analysis for a variety of uses while maintaining standards to facilitate data exchange and scalability for application in Kenya. With funding from JRS biodiversity Foundation, this portal provides a use case for Kajiado and Kwale counties to ensure the products are relevant to their mandates.
