Official Development Assistance (ODA)

PML is applying interdisciplinary approaches to develop capacity in Official Development Assistance (ODA) countries in order to support achievement of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals. One of our recent successes was securing funding from the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) for the Blue Communities project which will help to build long-term research capability for marine planning in East and South-East Asia. This will support local coastal communities which depend upon healthy and diverse marine ecosystems for food, livelihoods, their health and well-being.
