ColBioDiv project (Integrated Biodiversity Management in Exemplar Regions of Colombia)

Colombia offers a unique variety of ecosystems, some of which are still in a very natural state, but which are being negatively affected by increasing usage requirements and usage competition. The ColBioDiv project seeks to generate the knowledge base required for a sustainable development by following a transdisciplinary research approach (integration of scientific and socio-cultural approaches).
