As part of the Secretariats commitment to environmental monitoring (SPREP Strategic Plan 2017-2026), the development of environmental datasets and indicators is one of the exciting priorities for the organization in the next five (5) years. Collection of environmental data is often costly, and the Secretariat is seeking to increase support for Pacific Island countries by finding synergistic ways to capitalising on collection events and streamline environmental reporting. One such opportunity comes from tracking the performance and improvement in environmental impact assessment (EIA) application and enforcement in the region, along with to storing of the data from EIAs in government databases.
