Host Country Institutions:
The proposed Darwin Scholar, Mr Anthony Mitchell, would collaborate with experts in the field of marine resource management and relate this work experience to his duties as Chief GIS Analyst and Researcher at CORALINA, Colombia.
Mr Mitchell would be closely associated with staff at Heriot-Watt University and other institutions and would gain valuable insights into comparable, and new, procedures in biodiversity conservation management. The Scholarship would enable Mr Mitchell to become involved in, and help actively develop, the "Information and Experience Exchange" network of relevant Darwin projects being established as part of a new Darwin Initiative project (162/12/021) in Panama.
