What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
Many issues arise when it comes to accessing information on environment and sustainable development at the regional level and its circulation, namely: The non-institutionalisation of regional networks for information and data sharing The absence of a dynamic regional platform to share information and data on environment and sustainable development.
What is the commitment?
This commitment will strengthen and revitalise the Regional Monitoring Centres on Environment and Sustainable Development (ONEDD), which manage and share environmental data and information with partners and the public. It is within this context that the Secretariat of State in charge of Sustainable Development began a large-scale project to supply each region with a Regional Information System on Environment and Sustainable Development (SIREDD). This commitment consists of: Using and deploying a technology platform to manage and share environmental data; Updating the SIREDDs by collecting and adding data; Training and supporting regional partners to feed and update the SIREDDs; Developing a geo-catalogue and suppling it with data and the anticipated services. The impact of this commitment will be assessed based on the following indicators: Number of regional networks to share information and data institutionalised with gubernatorial decrees signed by the Walis (Governors) of the regions: 9 out of 12 of the Kingdom’s regions; Number of SIREDDs deployed: 3 out of 12 of the Kingdom’s regions.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
The creation of regional information sharing networks and the development of the SIREDDs will invigorate the circulation of environmental information at the regional level.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
The importance of this commitment lies in the fact that it helps the regions to: Invigorate the circulation of information and meet the needs of users from the public, private, and NGO sector with regard to environmental information through the development of a Regional Portal for Environmental Information; Provide a support tool for decision making and technological monitoring with regard to managing and protecting the environment and sustainable development; Set up a platform for the updating, production, and regular dissemination of environmental information and data; Build capacity among the regional managers with regard to the production, management, and use of information on environment and sustainable development.
The SIREDDs will be supplied with new modules and functionalities to monitor climate change indicators and the sustainable development goals (SDG). Related commitment: Commitment 4
