The MGI-DE con­sor­tium con­cep­tu­al­ized, designed, and imple­ment­ed a NEIS (Nation­al Envi­ron­men­tal Infor­ma­tion Sys­tem) for the gov­ern­ment of Saint Lucia. The NEIS is intend­ed to help Saint Lucia improve their capac­i­ty for report­ing to envi­ron­men­tal MEA’s (Mul­ti-Lat­er­al Envi­ron­men­tal Agree­ments)

The project was fund­ed by the GEF (Glob­al Envi­ron­men­tal Facil­i­ty) and exe­cut­ed for Saint Lucia with UN Envi­ron­ment over­see­ing imple­men­ta­tion.

DE served as the ana­lyt­i­cal lead on the data and indi­ca­tors as they relate to UNFCCC, UNCCD, and UNCBD pol­i­cy and report­ing objec­tives. MGI led the tech­ni­cal design and imple­men­ta­tion of the sys­tem.

The sys­tem was launched with great enthu­si­asm and nation­al pride as this is one of the first plat­forms of its kind. See the launch-day press here.

The NEIS facil­i­tates envi­ron­men­tal report­ing to the UN for any coun­try. Our team is now seek­ing to imple­ment sim­i­lar sys­tems in oth­er coun­tries to help orga­nize and improve nation­al envi­ron­men­tal report­ing glob­al­ly.
