In 2018, SPC chose to pool resources across several diﬀerent web portal projects with the aim of developing a shared centralised platform that would not only meet the needs of SPC divisions but all Pacific data producers and users. The Pacific Data Hub was created with the aim of establishing a sustainable data infrastructure to catalogue Pacific datasets, improve data management and policy, and encourage informed decision making using this data.
The Pacific Data Hub will fill data gaps in the Pacific and provide trusted and evidence-based information to decision-makers.
The platform serves as a digital gateway to information from Pacific countries, development partners, academia and research organisations and the private sector, and will act as a single, authoritative point of entry for all Pacific data, information and publications.
The Pacific Data Hub has been entirely created and developed in the Pacific, by the Pacific, with the guiding objective of improving the lives of the Pacific peoples.
