Teariki Tearetoa, NES Research and Pa Enua Coordinator, attended the final regional meeting on the Inform Project. The Inform Project is a unified response for the need of data-driven decision making in the Pacific. The project was funded by the Global Environment Facility and executed by SPREP for fourteen Pacific Islands countries including the Cook Islands.

The Inform Project is to increase data availability on environmental resources, improve information management and interpretation of environmental data, and access timely information for decision making, planning and reporting. The Pacific implementing partners and stakeholders came together to consolidate the results and achievements of the Inform Project, discuss the forward-looking strategy and plans to replicate, expand and sustain the Inform Project results.

This included opportunities to integrate results into the UNEP-led and GCF-funded program “Enhancing Climate Information and Knowledge Services for resilience in 5 island countries of the Pacific Ocean”, EU funded ACPMEA3 and other initiatives and programs.

Pacific Island country representatives involved were able to share from their experiences best practices used, lessons learned, and share insights gained throughout the Project. In addition, participants were able to establish, renew and strengthen partnerships and networking across and among key stakeholders involved. We look forward and anticipate the next phase of the Project being the INFORM Plus.More information can be viewed here
