Programme (CEP) has been active in communicating the principals
and practices the protection and sustainable development
of the marine and coastal environment. One of our aims is
to play a key role in informing and exchanging ideas with
students, policy-makers and the general public of the environmental
issues that face the Wider Caribbean Region.
We do this through various environmental
awareness publications and activities:

you up-to-date on developments within CEP as well as related events
in the Wider Caribbean Region.
Technical Reports - These publications are the
results of various projects and activities co-ordinated by the
CEP. While not all the reports are yet available in an on-line
form, they are all available in paper form from our office.
