The Marine Environment Protection Authority (MEPA) is the apex body established by the Government of Sri Lanka, under the Marine Pollution Prevention Act No. 35 of 2008, with the sole responsibility to prevent, control, and manages the pollution of Sri Lanka's Marine Environment.
MEPA is a member of the following work packages:
Investigate how nitrogen pollution can intensify coral bleaching and stop reefs from recovering by comparing reefs at different distances from pollution sources
This research focuses on understanding how nitrogen impacts as it flows through water ways from rivers to the ocean and model how this may change in the future. It also looks at how better waste water management could reduce pollution and ways we can increase water quality
