Delegation from the Guangxi region of China visit PML

RAMPing up monitoring in the Guangxi region of China

 

PML scientists welcomed a delegation from the Guangxi region of China this week to discuss the establishment of marine monitoring along the Guangxi coastline, based on PML’s RAMP (Rapid Assessment and Monitoring of Pollution) approach, and in light of developments to build trade links with the Southeast Asian nations to the west and increased industrial activities.

The Guangxi coastline features large areas of mangrove as well as a significant aquaculture industry and therefore, the pollution and fisheries challenges faced by neighbouring provinces are of concern.
