The PINDIP Network


The “Pollinator Information Network for Two-Winged Insects” (PINDIP) addresses the role of Diptera in plant-pollination in the Afrotropical Region. It does so, by creating a network for Diptera taxonomists and plant-insect interaction ecologists. For instance, several important Afrotropical institutes currently do not have Diptera curators and technical staff and require guidance in terms of sorting and curating material. We organize training courses that focus on tutoring collection curators, technicians and students, in order to build a sustainable network of trained taxonomists on Afrotropical Diptera within the Afrotropics.

Welcome to the first issue of volume 6 of the Pollinator Information Network Newsletter

The Pollinator Information Network Newsletter is one of the projected outputs of the “Diversity of
Pollinating Diptera of the Afrotropical Region” project, a project funded by the Belgian Development
Cooperation through the framework agreement with the Royal Museum for Central Africa. The first
phase of the project will end this year but the project will continue for another five years. More on
this in the forthcoming issues!
In this issue, we announce the 12 participants of our fifth training course on the Taxonomy and
Systematics of Pollinating Diptera, which will take place from 16-28 October in Morogoro, Tanzania.
Watch our Facebook page (see below) for pictures on the planned activities! At least two more
training courses are planned: one in 2025 in South Africa and a second one in 2027 in either Burundi
or Rwanda.
