The IAEA is helping twelve countries in the Caribbean to understand and manage coastal pollution. Led by IAEA experts in aquatic and marine environment, the project has established a network of experts and laboratories across the Caribbean basin.

The Caribbean network now trains further experts in nuclear techniques and provides isotopic analysis capacity.
