Regional Training

Since 2010, IMO has been supporting Djibouti Code of Conduct participating States to develop their maritime law enforcement capability to counter piracy and other threats to safety and security of navigation. To boost the effort, IMO established partnerships with other international and regional organizations including Saudi Arabia’s Mohammed Bin Nayef Academy of Marine NATO Maritime Interdiction Operational Training Centre (NMIOTC), East African Standby Force (EASF), British Peace Support Team (AFRICA), EU CRIMARIO, US AFRICOM and others. Between 2011 and 2020, 92 courses had been delivered under the auspices of the DCoC which benefitted 1678 students from all the 20 participating countries. 

The “Jeddah Meeting” of signatory States called upon the Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organization to continue developing and promoting training courses appropriate to the wide, effective and uniform implementation of the provisions of the Code, and also called for co-operation from member States to develop and promote training and educational programs for the region.

The current focus of the DCoC training programme is to prioritize the development and delivery of training packages to enhance port security, Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) and table top exercises for decision makers geared to encourage the establishment of National Maritime Security Committees and whole of government approach in dealing with maritime security issues.
