International Maritime Organization (IMO)  is providing training to countries in the west Indian Ocean and Gulf of Aden on managing insecurity in the maritime domain in a regional workshop at the Djibouti Regional Training Centre (9-13 December).

The countries are Comoros, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Jordan, Kenya, Madagascar, Maldives, Tanzania, Seychelles, Somalia, South Africa, the Sudan and Yemen.

It’s the latest in an ongoing series of capacity-building initiatives in the region, targeted at national focal points and key personnel in maritime security.

Participants include officers from coast guards, marine police, navy and maritime administrations, serving at sea or ashore, who have operational responsibility for maritime law enforcement.

They are being trained on regional and national measures that need to be taken to adequately understand, influence, prevent, protect and respond to insecurity in the maritime domain.

A key part of these national measures is working towards a “whole-of-government” approach, by sharing best practices on how multi-agency and multi-disciplinary efforts can better implement and enforce the Djibouti Code of Conduct (DCoC) and related Jeddah Amendment – the international treaties instrumental in repressing piracy and armed robbery against ships in the region.

The Djibouti Regional Training Centre is part-funded by IMO and supports implementation of the DCoC and Jeddah Amendment.
