|UKOTCF Information Database|
|This database has been in use for about a decade, and is now being revised to make use of improvements in software over that period. The updating is being done in a modular way, as funds and human resources allow. Therefore, the format of some modules will be different from others until the process is complete. Although a great deal of checking has been done while migrating data to the new system, some errors will remain; please advise firstname.lastname@example.org.
For each of the following modules of the database, the heading links to a page enabling structured searches by appropriate categories or words.
Information on environmental education resources which may be suitable or easily adaptable for use in a particular Territory, thereby reducing development costs and “re-inventing of the wheel”.
Contains information on the location, features, status, threats and conservation management of areas of land and water. Various forms of searching are also easy, such as finding entries ("Events") from any site relating to a particular Topic.
Allows the tracking of projects designed to meet some of the conservation priorities in individual Territories and for these Territories in combination. This may be of use at various stages, for example:
Provides basic information and sources of further advice on a range of topics (not covered in the other sections) of interest to those concerned with conservation in the UK Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies (and often relevant elsewhere too).
The priorities identified were worked out with the full involvement of conservation bodies in each UK Overseas Territory, originally in 1994-5 and updated by some of the Territories on various occasions since. UKOTCF will assist with further updates.
This gives basic information and directions to further information on potential funding sources which have shown an interest in supporting work in UK Overseas Territories. (This module is unavailable at present, as it needs updating; meanwhile JNCC have indicated that their web-site covers this function.)
NB - The Information Database is quite separate from the Site Search facility, which is directed to searching the contents of all pages on this site. Documents in the Information Database must be accessed via one of the links above.
