The Reference Information Systems (RIS) is a tool that gathers in one place the information from the many knowledge products, projects, databases on protected areas, species and related information, in addition to the data uploaded, created and generated by the users themselves. This information can be used to support decision making for planning, designating and managing protected areas. The regional versions of the RIS are key features of the BIOPAMA Observatories for protected areas and biodiversity established in the African, Caribbean and Pacific countries.
