Protected AreasAny national data on important areas for connectivity and species movement. Data on environmental gradients or diversity.The FIP connectivity data does cover parts of Liberia.Shapefiles of protected areas availableFDA

CI (through GEF) identified conservation priorities with consideration of where the species may move under climate change. This is to avoid investing in areas where species are now but may not be in the future. That product is available here: http://www.sparc-website.org/priorities

Could use human footprint as a proxy for invasive species (which tend to be introduced through human movement and can invade in disturbed habitats), but this would be a pretty crude proxy for areas affected by invasive species and needing management.See how some recent global alien species data I've seen recently-ish scales at the country level.Alien Invasive species pointsnot able to use points data
