IMO maritime security training concludes in Kenya

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has sponsored a national training session in Mombasa, Kenya to educate authorities on maritime security control and compliance with SOLAS rule XI-2.

According to the IMO, 15 representatives from the country’s major maritime agencies learnt about best practices for promoting and raising awareness of the necessity for an effective and adequately staffed control and compliance system.

The Kenya Coast Guard Services (KCGS), Kenya Maritime Agency (KMA), Kenya Ports Authority (KPA), State Department of Shipping and Maritime (SDSM), Port Management Association of Eastern and Southern Africa (PMAESA), and Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) were among the maritime agencies in attendance.

This programme is part of the EU-funded project on port security and safety of navigation in Eastern and Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean.

These regions cover key maritime trade routes for the Global South’s economic growth, necessitating strong regional collaboration, maritime enforcement agencies, and stringent compliance regimes.

The IMO initiative intends to improve marine security and safety in nine member nations, aligning with Africa’s Integrated Marine Strategy for 2050.

In May, members of the IMO urged for an immediate stop to assaults on ships and seafarers passing the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden.
