The Blue Belt Programme supports the delivery of the UK Government's commitment to enhance marine protection of over four million square kilometres of marine environment across UK Overseas Territories. The programme is a partnership between two world-leading agencies of the UK Government, the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) and the Marine Management Organisation (MMO).

The Blue Belt programme Annual Update for 2018/19, which sets out the achievements of the programme has recently been published and is available to download at the following link:
