Kiribati EnvironmentInformation Management System (KEIMS) is a new initiative developed by Environment Data and Information Management Section (EDIMS) for the purpose of consolidating, storing and securing all information and data, related to Environment and Conservation Division (ECD) for environmental reporting purposes.
ECD has 4 Sections such as Biodiversity and Climate Change Section (BCCS), Waste Management and Pollution Prevention Section (WMPPS), License and Compliance Section (LCS) and Environment Data and Information Management Section (EIDMS). Each Sections consist of several Units operated respectively.
However, the generation of information and data from each Units/Sections is an ongoing process based on activities implemented. Capturing all of these different information and data due to different file format allows EDIMS to design a multi system with subsystem put in place to address this complexity. In addition, other environment previous information and data are also considered in the development and design of the system.
As KEIMS is still under development through an iterative process, staff are encourage to contribute their ideas, designs, and changes to make the system more effective and meaningful to their respective Units and Sections. Indeed establishing EIMS Team/Committee can be an excellent approach to maximize, strengthen and accelerate EIMS development.
