Duties and Responsibilities

During the Yaoundé Summit in June 2013, Heads of State (and representing ECCAS, ECOWAS and the GGC) adopted the Code of Conduct addressing the prevention and suppression of illegal acts occurring in the maritime space of the Gulf of Guinea. The Code is largely inspired by the Djibouti Code of Conduct on fight against piracy in the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden and forms a legal framework for cooperation between the two regions. It defines the terms of intervention, sharing of responsibilities and practical organization of the fight against illegal marine activities. The Interregional Coordination Centre (ICC) was established in this regard to enhancing the activities geared towards cooperation, coordination, mutualization, and systems interoperability through encouraging the implementation of the mentioned Code of Conduct and the regions’ maritime strategies.
