General objective

The overall objective is to increase port security by increased preparedness, and monitoring and handling of transiting goods. This action therefore aims at increasing the capacity of partner countries to address port-related vulnerabilities.

Specific objective

The increase in capacity will lead to:
- strengthened compliance with ISPS-standards;
- increased preparedness and resilience to risks through detection and handling of illicit or dangerous activity;
- increased resilience when a crisis event occurs (attack, explosion, spill etc.).
Better training for public and private actors dealing with security leads to increased detection of illegal substances and goods, awareness of potential risks and hazards and adequate handling of dangerous and illegal substances when they are found.
Moreover, the programme intends to bring together national authorities from different countries of the Gulf of Guinea in order to share experiences and best practices.
