Officers of the Conservation and Environmental Protection Authority of PNG are this week receiving focused capacity training on the use of the national environmental data portal, an on-line tool to address the on-going challenge of compiling high-quality, and up to date data on the environment including a place to store data. The development of a national data portal will improve access for national datasets and indicators for environment information.
