Friday / September 30, 2016

Boosting maritime security in Sao Tome

An IMO-led maritime security table top exercise was held in Sao Tome and Principe (27-28 September) for participants from a range of government departments and national agencies, including the Maritime Authority. The exercise encourages a multi-agency, whole of government approach to maritime security and maritime law enforcement issues. A range of evolving scenarios are being used to stimulate discussions and demonstrate the need for cooperation amongst government departments and agencies.

This is the 18th IMO-led table top exercise to be held in West Africa and the third table-top exercise to be held in Lusophone Africa. The event is being conducted by a team of maritime security consultants and hosted by the Sao Tome and Principe Maritime and Port Authority. IMO is being represented by Gisela Vieira and a team of consultants.
