CRIMGO

CMR Gulf of Guinea
2013/2016

Starting in 2013, the EU project Critical Maritime Routes Gulf of Guinea (CRIMGO) was designed to strengthen the operational capabilities of regional and national maritime organizations, and support the implementation of the Yaoundé Code of Conduct and its architecture.

Using tailor-made capacity-building tools, and in cooperation with the Regional Maritime University in Accra and the Académie Régionale de Sciences et Techniques de la Mer in Abidjan, CRIMGO has advanced the knowledge and improved the skills of maritime authorities and institutions across the Gulf of Guinea.

CRIMGO has also played a crucial role in the setting up of the Inter-regional Coordination Centre (ICC), and therefore helped strengthening the Yaoundé architecture.

CRIMGO was officially concluded in October 2016. The closing ceremony brought together national authorities, regional institutions but also a new regional community of maritime professionals that should contribute to enhance inter-agency and maritime cooperation in the region.

CRIMGO has been able to ensure the sustainability of its training tools, and paved the way to the implementation of another CMR project in the Gulf of Guinea: GoGIN.
