The Coda Network

In 2021 the Chief Medical Officer looked at health in coastal communities, and highlighted  that the available data on health and wellbeing were poor and lacked granularity. He recommended that this should be addressed to support the development of policies aimed at improving the health of coastal communities.

The Eastern Arc Coastal Data (‘Coda’) Network was established to provide a framework to address this. It is intended to be responsive to the needs of its members, to explore opportunities to collaborate and facilitate the robust collection, sharing and analysis of data, and to identify ways in which we can work together for the benefit of our coastal communities.

Following our 2024 workshop, held in collaboration with the University of Essex Centre for Coastal Communities, we are currently developing full terms of reference, membership and programme of future activities.
