Data science is one of the emerging fields in computer science involving the extracting of insight from information assets for various level of collaboration and decision making. One of the key applications of data science is the solving of environmental impact of climate change which has significantly affected small islands developing states in the Caribbean and Pacific nations. This paper will discuss the creation of a Knowledge Management System (KMS) as a mechanism for the storage of information in the Measurement, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) in Trinidad and Tobago. The primary purpose of the MRV is the tracking of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) this is achieved through the suppliers or stakeholders of data entering the GHG information either from calculations on activity data and/or meters available at the facility areas. This system captures the data and utilises business intelligence techniques to gain insight into information such as determining reasons for reductions. The KMS is also utilised for data and information such as GHG emissions, document management and workflow processing of the GHG inventory cycle for the country.
