Objective & Description
UNEP's web-based knowledge platform - UNEP Live - (www.unep.org/uneplive)supports assessment processes such as the on-going GEO SIDS process.

UNEP Live

-Promotes open access to SIDS data and knowledge from various sources see http://uneplive.unep.org/region/index/59# . The SIDS page contains real-time maps (eg sea level rise); enables charting of key indicators (with data from global sources); contains regional data; assessment reports and other key publications (UNEP's and partners including SIDS countries).

-Each SIDS country has a country page on UNEP Live, where they can share data and knowledge: eg http://uneplive.unep.org/country/index/WS#.U7LDPUD5_xU

-UNEP Live will support capacity development through tools such as Country Reporting Toolkits. The toolkits are customized online software that can deliver data and indicators to support national SoE reporting as well as international/regional/national reporting requirements. The CRTs will help countries:
-Transform data into actionable indicators using custom visualizations
-Build State of Environment (SoE) reports online using the latest available data at the national level to produce reports
collaboratively between ministries and agencies.
-Share and export outputs and data for further analysis
-Update SoE reports as new data arrive.
