To sustainably manage and use marine resources it is vital that we properly understand them. To facilitate this within Commonwealth Small Island Developing States, the CME Programme has been delivering a range of projects and activities requested by the eligible countries, including collecting data, undertaking scientific research and conducting knowledge exchange and capacity building activities.

The project activities presented on this site are those funded by the CME Programme that have been led and delivered by the National Oceanography Centre. Further details on the CME Programme, and the capacity building activities being conducted by the other UK Government agencies are available at: or by contacting
