Enhancing maritime security

A table top exercise on maritime security has taken place in Sao Vicente Island, Cabo Verde aimed at encouraging a multi-agency, governmental approach to maritime security and maritime law enforcement issues.

Organised by the Cape Verde Maritime Authority, run by a team of IMO consultants and attended by national agencies – the exercise follows the IMO/MOWCA (MoU) and the Code of Conduct concerning the prevention of piracy, armed robbery against ships and illicit maritime activity in West and Central Africa.

IMO has been running this programme, designed to highlight the need for inter-agency co-operation and the development of national maritime strategies and contingency plans, in West and Central Africa, since 2012.
