These slides, presented by Sarah Darrah from the UN Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre at the Mainstreaming biodiversity workshop in Sogakope, Ghana, in November 2016, look at how spatial data can be used as a tool to support mainstreaming.
Darrah acknowledges that lack of access to data, and a lack of expertise in using spatial data, can be barriers to using this information for mainstreaming, but where there are existing research and data collection programmes and exchange of information between institutions, then spatial information can be a valuable.
She illustrates this using an example from the Lake Victoria basin, looking at the potential impacts of agricultural development on biodiversity.
