Data Impact

We, in the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs, have taken great strides to improve our services and deliverables, to all our stakeholders. Open Data has been an integral part of the services we provide to the public. We have adopted an Integrated Open Data Policy, published on our website. We have also followed set international standards on how to publish and share predetermined Data sets, insuring accessibility and readability of the Data and ample explanations are present within the sets.


               
"We hereby invite you to view, access, download, use and distribute all and any of the Data available on our website. We encourage you to utilize our data in research, and decision making. We hope you get inspired to use our Data to create helpful and useful solutions and applications."



We need your help to make this experience better, please let us know how we can improve our Data sets, and what data would you like to see. We invite you to share testimonials and credits if you use our data, under no obligation what so ever.
This would help us build and design our data sets to best suit the local communities and help gauge the interest level generated by those data sets.

"After firsthand monitoring of the OD initiative by MECA, I am pleased to report that MECA is at the forefront of the OD movement in Oman both technically and administratively. Behind every successful implementation is a team of dedicated and gifted people and MECA's OD team is an example of this. I believe with strengthened support from the relevant authorities moving forward the OD agenda in Oman, MECA's OD initiative will grow exponentially in the coming months. "
