Peruvian Coastal Atlas
by Instituto del Mar del PerĂº (IMARPE) (Government)
The Coastal Marine Atlas of Peru provides information on environmental quality in different parts of the coast of Peru, showing information on the main cities, bays and coastal areas.

This project aims to collect, systematize and integrate the information generated by the different departments of the Instituto del Mar del Per for the elaboration of a Digital Atlas distributed online and that can be used as a tool for decision making in the use of marine resources and in the management of the coastal marine space and the organization of its activities. In addition to the Atlas data service, a metadata server will also be installed to make it easier for users to find information.

Type of commitment
  • Integrated Coastal Management
  • Marine Spatial Planning
Increase scientific knowledge, develop research capacity and transfer marine technology, taking into account the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission Criteria and Guidelines on the Transfer of Marine Technology, in order to improve ocean health and to enhance the contribution of marine biodiversity to the development of developing countries, in particular small island developing States and least developed countries
Type of commitment
  • Research capacity development
  • Data access and sharing
  • Scientific cooperation
Enhance the conservation and sustainable use of oceans and their resources by implementing international law as reflected in UNCLOS, which provides the legal framework for the conservation and sustainable use of oceans and their resources, as recalled in paragraph 158 of The Future We Want
