Proposed technical assistance - in 2013 and 2014 with EU co-financing. Based on the need to have access to timely reliable energy data from the past regional and high-level meetings, the leaders agreed to have a national and a transnational data repository on energy at the Pacific Leaders Energy Summit in Tonga in March 2013. In September 2013, at the 68th United Nations General Assembly, 11 PICs signed a declaration to establish the PRDR.  At the 2014 Joint Regional Meeting of Energy and Transport Ministers, decision was made for SPC to develop the portal and be the interim host and steering committee set up to provide oversight support. In September 2015, Pacific Energy Ministers endorsed SPC to be the permanent host. ESCAP drafted the original PRDR concept and SPC has used the concept to build & strengthen the repository with funding from Australia, the European Union and the World Bank. SPC is now working with the World Bank to develop a 5-year strategy for the portal and to have the repository developed in parallel with the database activities of SPC.
