This study aimed to understand how Environmental Information Systems (EIS) had been successfully developed and what factors might contribute to its demise. This study is timely given increasing demands on nvironmental management best practices and the current calls on how IS can be designed for such 'green' practices. Drawing from a case study, this paper examined an ongoing design and development of a farm management system seeking to enhance understanding of EIS development and success. The findings identified a number of key issues that were important in the EIS development. These included how the development process, collaboration and involvement, technical aspect, support and participation and support from all stakeholders including smaller ones. The results from this study suggested that EIS development exhibited a lot of challenges because it had involved a number of persons, diverse organizations and non-human aspects such as environmental regulation, standardization and safety aspect. Given this flux nature, it was therefore important for the initiators (e.g. Government and developers) to establish alliances with other interested parties, orchestrate the view of different stakeholders and technical aspects to success the design process.
