IMR is dedicated to the sustainable management and development of the marine and coastal resources of the Pacific. IMR delivers research and consultancy studies, technical analysis, development work, professional training and education in the marine and coastal sector.
IMR will be seeking to strengthen the partnership with the Council of the Regional Organisations in the Pacific (CROP) and other development agencies in order to enhance the coastal and marine sector. In addition, IMR will also work in partnership with industry, other research and education organisations and NGO’s involved in the management and development of the marine sector.
Under the “Small Islands, Big Ocean” theme of the USP Strategic Plan (2013 – 2018), IMR will collaborate with marine focused staff, students and programs to substantially contribute to the sustainable development of coastal and marine resources across the Pacific.
