Project description


Duration: September 2013 - June 2016

UNEP-Live is UNEP's new platform for environmental data, information and knowledge management that provides access to environmental information assets held by UNEP and its partners, supports integrated environmental assessments (IEAs) and state of the environment (SoE) reporting processes, and enables countries to collect, manage and share data for IEA/SoE reporting as well. UNEP-Live assists in moving towards dynamic data-driven assessment and reporting processes, and is being built through partnerships with national and international organizations and others. UNEP-Live seeks to harness the potential of technologies such as web, mobile devices, social media et al., to change the way in which environmental assessment, monitoring and reporting are done, and to provide countries world-wide with the same capacities and tools.
