NOC aims to develop a collaboration with the University of the West Indies

Just before the end of 2018 NOC scientists visited the University of the West Indies, in Jamaica, to discuss potential collaborations on projects aimed at understanding the impact of climate change and sea-level rise on Small Island Developing States. The group also discussed potential collaborations on the use of nature-based coastal defences, such mangroves and coral reefs.

This forms part of the Commonwealth Marine Economies (CME) Programme, which aims to enable safe and sustainable marine economies across Commonwealth Small Island Developing States.
