This paper reports on the development of the CCAMLR MPA Information Repository (CMIR), which has been divided into two phases for development. Phase 1 is a proof of concept targeted for completion in October 2019, with outcomes including the deployment of the CMIR host server, a project submission portal, and developed workflow. The principal aim of Phase 1 is to have infrastructure in place that will support submission and hosting of MPA project data. The Secretariat will provide support to Members to begin submitting projects following completion. Phase 2 will further develop the CMIR with a focus on user interaction, exploration of RMP projects, and server design. Phase 2 outcomes include an established CMIR host server, and development of a search portal as well as tools to support MPA reporting. Updates and recommendations related to Phase 2 will be presented at WG-EMM-2020.
