Description

This commitment has been modified and carried over in line with the stretch and ambition approach. While in the previous plan we focused on conducting a feasibility study now the focus is on developing the actual portal and integrating all existing portals and information.
Currently government has portals across different government departments on environmental information. A need has been identified to have an integrated portal that provides aggregated environmental information across sectors. The availability of such a portal would strengthen compliance with environmental regulation while at the same time providing citizens with access to comprehensive information on environment.
