 SPREP Environmental Monitoring and Governance (EMG)

The objective of this regional meeting is to build the capacity of the 14 project target countries, with an aim to build an open data community amongst the users of the national data portals and inform outputs. This is intended to improve south-south collaboration, enhance the opportunity for sustainability and increase the feeling of ownership and belonging amongst the project countries.

This will be delivered by real world application of Inform developed processes and tools, focused on a common area to all countries; protected areas.

Regional participants from Palau, FSM, Kiribati and Samoa attending the Inform data portal training at SPREP, learned a new tool on data collection using a mobile app, KoBoToolbox: a free and open data software for collecting and managing data in resource-constrained environments.

Participants learned how to download the app, built a data collection survey form, store the survey in the cloud, and then went on a data collection exercise (just here at SPREP grounds recording items from trash cans!). During the exercise they entered data on the form using their phones.
