WELCOME TO VISA
WHAT VISA IS AND WHAT IT DOES
VISA is a metadata project covering sub-Saharan Africa.
It aims to highlight progress towards vulture conservation objectives outlined in the Multi-species Action Plan to conserve African-Eurasian Vultures (the Vulture MsAP).
VISA highlights ongoing knowledge gaps, promotes connectivity between stakeholders and aims to minimise duplication of effort.
Metadata (literally 'data about data') are the simplest way to describe what work is being done.
The metadata project concept relies on all stakeholders involved with vulture research and conservation to promote their work by sharing their metadata, whilst keeping their project data on their own terms.
WHO IS VISA
VISA is a non-organisational project that sits under the umbrella of the IUCN's Vulture Specialist Group.
The metadata project concept grew out of an earlier plan to gather and highlight progress towards vulture research and conservation in southern Africa.
With the realisation of vultures being in rapid decline across many parts of Africa, the VISA project concept expanded from southern Africa to sub-Saharan Africa.
