Conservation data policy template and primer

The Data Policy Primer and Template are useful for developing strategies and policies surrounding all types of data generated and used in the Conservation profession.

The objective of the Policy Primer and Template was to engage in a dialogue with institutions which are interested in supporting the community by sharing documentation records and offer an avenue for policy change. The policy template is a document providing a skeleton structure for data policies in conservation departments. The document is provided as a starting point for departments to set the limitations and ambitions for sharing conservation data. This is the final version which has been ratified by the IIC, Icon and AIC.
