Funded by the Danish government and administered by UNODC, this project is intended to strengthen the development of sustainable and cohesive institutional arrangements for maritime security through enhancing the strategic basis for decision-making and the practical interaction between relevant actors, including the national maritime authorities, navies, maritime police and other law enforcement and justice actors in both Ghana and Nigeria. The engagement will build upon the existing mandates, the leadership of national authorities in the two countries. CEMLAWS Africa will be implementing the project in both Nigeria and Ghana.
