The GRID database is maintained for the purpose of assisting individual nations and the international community in making sound decisions related to resource management and environmental planning, and where applicable providing data for scientific studies. In general, requests for data from the archive will be filled according to data availability, GRID workload and the nature of the data set being requested. Requests will be queued with priority given to requests related to joint activities with UNEP programme areas. UN organizations, intergovernmental organizations, scientific and academic organizations, non-governmental organizations are all eligible to request data from the GRID archive. Requests from eligible organizations for data with unrestricted access rating will normally be filled without further clearance. Requests for data with a source approval rating will be referred to the relevant authority for clearance, and in some cases, the requestor will be advised to seek the data from the source. Data sets with an in-house rating will not be distributed; however, information about such data sets, including the distributor's name, will be sent to eligible organizations on request. Data requests from private commercial firms and private individuals will not be filled. Exceptional cases in which the intended use of the data would be of direct benefit to the United Nations or member states will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the GRID Director, in consultation with the UNEP Assistant Executive Director-Programme.
