UNEP Live: A System-Wide Approach To Keeping The Environment Under Review
UNEP Live aims to support assessment processes through the provision of substantiated, contextualised knowledge about the environment by developing richer sets of data and knowledge flows and bringing together diverse communities of practice.
The aim of UNEP Live is to facilitate the exchange and sharing of latest data, information, assessments and knowledge amongst member countries, research networks, communities of practice, indigenous peoples and society, in order to keep the environment and emerging issues under review.
The Indicator Reporting Information System (IRIS) is a national reporting system been developed by UNEP to make it easier to take stock of the environment. Those in government responsible for collecting data, indicators and reporting to MEAs as well as at the national and regional levels, can now communicate information quickly online.
UNEP Live can deploy the IRIS at the national level, connecting to different Ministries and agencies as required. This will enable the regular sharing and updating of data and indicators, which can then be used to meet many different reporting obligations. The IRIS also includes a Dashboard that enables decision-makers to access, at their finger-tips, the state and trends of the environment.
It can be connected to UNEP Live so that countries can share relevant data and indicators with UNEP audiences.
If your government/organization is interested in IRIS, contact the UNEP Live team at firstname.lastname@example.org
