CEBioS granted funding by the SCBD Bio-Bridge Initiative
CEBioS and its partners in Benin, the Institut de Recherches Halieutiques et Océanologiques du Bénin (IRHOB) and the University of Abomey-Calavi (UAC), are granted funding from the SCBD Bio-Bridge Initiative.
|Keywords||capacity-building, marine environment, aquatic resources|
The overall objective of this project is to foster long-term cooperation between the 3 partner institutions on the development of a methodology to acquire reliable scientific data for rational management and conservation of aquatic resources in Benin, using sound scientific, technical, and socioeconomic advice.
This cooperation project proposes to manufacture Arduino sensors in order to measure physicochemical water quality parameters, such as temperature, salinity, acidity and dissolved oxygen, of the marine and lacustrine environment around Cotonou in Benin.
Data collection will constitute the first step towards constructing habitat suitability maps.
The Bio-Bridge Initiative aims at promoting technical and scientific cooperation to support the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and the achievement of its Aichi Biodiversity Targets.
