Folder Reporting

The Belgian National Focal Point to the Global Taxonomy continuously strives to optimise its capacity building program, both in terms of logistics and in contents. Grantees’ opinions are instrumental in order to learn from successes as well as failures. Therefore we ask grantees to send us a concise written report.

Grantees from developing countries that have benefitted from a capacity building visit to Belgium are requested to fill in our report questionnaire available below.

Grantees are also stimulated to annex their report with pictures that reflect either their taxonomic work (e.g. sampling in the field) or their received training in Belgium (e.g. lab work). The Belgian National Focal Point might use some of these pictures in one of its reporting activities, but only after the copyright holder has given his permission.Grantees are also asked to sendall outputs of their capacity building training (e.g. scientific papers, new species, collections, posters, tools developed, etc.) to the Belgian GTI Office and this preferentially in electronic form.

Belgian promoters of capacity building project in a developing country are requested to submit a written report no later than 15 May of the year in which the project ends. There is no required format or form for this report. However, reports will include at least the following items:

  • number, name, gender, qualification level, type of contribution and length of involvement (person-months) of researchers, managers and/or trainers;
  • number, name, gender, qualification level, type of contribution and length of involvement (person-months) of trainees;
  • achieved results (e.g. scientific papers, new species, collections, posters, tools developed, etc.);
  • outreach activities (if pertinent; e.g. workshops, press conferences, etc.);
  • a number of representative pictures of activities (if pertinent);
  • foreseen exit strategy (long term vision on durability of project);
  • detailed financial report.

Promoters are also stimulated to annex their report with pictures that reflect either their taxonomic work (e.g. sampling in the field) or the provided training in the partner country.

The Belgian National Focal Point might use some of these pictures in one of its reporting activities.
