Information about the project
Kuwait Official Environmental Portal “Beatona.net”
Kuwait Environment Public Authority (EPA) has taken the initiative to establish Kuwait Official Environmental Portal "Beatona.net"; a GIS-based web portal that aims at sharing authentic environmental information with the public over the internet. Beatona.net (“our environment” in Arabic) is a network that offers information about Kuwait's environment from various national, regional and international organizations on one single platform. It also allows the public to participate and interact in the preservation and protection of the environment by reporting environmental phenomena and problems. This is expected to play a leading role in raising awareness of the value of the environment in Kuwait.
