Statement by NSC Spokesperson Caitlin Hayden on the National Maritime Domain Awareness Plan emphasizes the importance of maritime security in the global supply chain.

Hayden said recently in a prepard statement, "The White House has released the National Maritime Domain Awareness Plan.  This plan promotes global maritime security and prosperity through improved governance to support the effective understanding of the maritime domain.  Notably, 90 percent of the world’s commerce moves by sea, making maritime security essential to the global supply chain and international trade."

He added, "Consistent with Presidential Policy Directive 18: Maritime Security (PPD-18) and the National Strategy for Maritime Security (NSMS), the National Maritime Domain Awareness Plan merges and supersedes the National Plan to Achieve Maritime Domain Awareness and the Global Maritime Intelligence Integration Plan, each published in 2005 as supporting plans to the NSMS.  The consolidation of the two plans into a single National Maritime Domain Awareness Plan advances the foundation for the effective understanding of actual and potential threats and challenges emanating from or related to the maritime domain.  Using a whole-of-nation approach, at minimal cost, it promotes favorable conditions for integrating and sharing information, including intelligence, to better inform decisions affecting the security, safety, economy, and environment of the United States and the global maritime commons."

Consistent with Presidential Policy Directive 18: Maritime Security (PPD-18) and the National Strategy for Maritime Security (NSMS), the National Maritime Domain Awareness Plan (NMDAP) merges and supersedes the National Plan to Achieve Maritime Domain Awareness of 2005 and the Global Maritime Intelligence Integration Plan of 2005. It establishes the foundation for the effective understanding of potential and actual maritime threats and challenges by promoting favorable conditions for integrating and sharing information, including intelligence, to inform decision-makers.

The NSMS is now supported by seven mutually reinforcing implementation plans:
 

  • The National Maritime Domain Awareness Plan provides the framework for collaboration to appropriately share and safeguard information within the Global Maritime Community of Interest to position decision-makers to prepare for, prevent, respond to, and recover from a broad spectrum of potential maritime related threats.
  • The Maritime Operational Threat Response Plan facilitates a coordinated U.S. government response to threats against the United States and its interests in the maritime domain by establishing roles and responsibilities, which enable the government to respond quickly and decisively.
  • The International Outreach and Coordination Strategy provides a framework to coordinate all maritime security initiatives undertaken with foreign governments and international organizations and to solicit international support for enhanced maritime security.
  • The Maritime Infrastructure Recovery Plan recommends standardized procedures for restoring maritime transportation systems following an incident of national significance.
  • The Maritime Transportation System Security Plan provides strategic recommendations to holistically improve Maritime Transportation System security.
  • The Maritime Commerce Security Plan establishes a comprehensive plan to secure the maritime supply chain.
  • The Domestic Outreach Plan seeks non-Federal input to assist with developing and implementing maritime security policies.
