The National Environmental Data Centre (NEDC) provides access to national environmental data for science, government, local bodies, industry, business, iwi/Māori, and the public of Aotearoa New Zealand.

New Zealand's Crown Research Institutes (CRIs), including ESR, hold data about important natural resources. The NEDC provides a centralised directory of these data which you can search to learn more about New Zealand's taonga.

The data sets provides insights to areas such as sustainable use of natural resources, land use decision making, environmental management and reporting, resilience to natural hazards, and conservation.​​

NEDC is a collaborative Crown Research Institute (CRI) initiative, integrating CRI data in a networked national environmental research data infrastructure. It's hoped that this will help address Aotearoa's most pressing challenges and provide improved environmental knowledge and insight.
