Climate Change-related information and data sources in Tonga, August 2015

An inventory of climate change-related information and data held by Tongan Government departments and Pacific regional organisations as at August 2015. This information was collected as part of the Pacific iCLIM project.  Information was gathered during a visit to Tonga by Rebecca Brown from Griffith University and Makelesi Gonelevu from SPREP, with the assistance of Ma'asi Lepa from the Climate Change Division, Ministry of Meteorology, Energy, Information, Disaster Management, Environment, Climate Change & Communications.

The purpose of the data/information stocktake  was to:

  • Discover what data and information assets (related to climate change planning and decision making) were being created and held within departments or organisations
  • Explore how those data and information assets are currently stored and shared
  • Identify the custodian or contact point for these information assets
  • Compile an inventory of this information
  • Improve accessibility to this information where possible
  • Increase awareness and promote the concepts of information sharing and open data.
