The Pacific Environment Portal provides an easy way to find, access and reuse regional and national data. Our main purpose is to provide easy access and safe storage for environmental datasets to be used for monitoring, evaluating, and analysing environmental conditions and trends to support environmental planning, forecasting, and reporting requirements at all levels. This Pacific Environment Portal is part of the Pacific Data Ecosystem, a partnership between Pacific Island Countries, SPREP and SPC. Visit the Pacific Data Hub for more data.

The Pacific Environment Portal automatically pulls in data from national repositories. This provides back-up and redundancy for national repositories. The countries retain data ownership. The online repository can be used to store and access any data type including tables (Excel, CSV) documents (Word and PDF), GIS files (.geojson, .shp, .tab) and any other file type including non-environmental datasets.

We encourage you to use publicly available government data to analyse and develop tools and applications to benefit all citizens.
