Officers of the Conservation and Environmental Protection Authority of PNG are this week receiving focused capacity training on the use of the national environmental data portal, an on-line tool to address the on-going challenge of compiling high-quality, and up to date data on the environment including a place to store data. The development of a national data portal will improve access for national datasets and indicators for environment information.

Reporting to national development targets and to regional and global environment conventions rely on the availability of good data and information on the current state of the environment. Data is essential for these processes and an open data platform will help decision-makers access the information they want to develop effective policy planning and development processes.
