Transitioning the Pacific Climate Change Portal (PCCP) towards a more strategic approach to managing climate change information and data will be a key component of the Pacific iCLIM project. This will ensure that the maximum benefit from recent investments into climate change data and information in the Pacific Region can be realised.
The Pacific iCLIM project will work with Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) to ensure that the technical aspects underpinning the PCCP support the following climate change data and information management principles to be achieved throughout the Pacific Region.
Data Management Principles
Effective data management
Providing regional bodies and governments with the capability to implement a more coordinated and standardised approach to data management.
Improving the capability of regional bodies and governments to discover data through greater connectivity among data management systems.
Ensuring that connected data has standard metadata, making it more widely discoverable to regional bodies and governments.
Ensuring that data and data produced from tools are in a format and system that makes it both reusable and re-discoverable.
