About

Overview

The Joint UNDP-UNODC Programme on Maritime Governance to promote security and safety in Yemen (hereinafter “joint programme”) aims at re-establishing the Yemen Coast Guard (YCG), strengthening the criminal justice chain on the investigation, prosecution and trial of maritime crimes, and progressing towards port security, maritime security and regional security.

The YCG capability will be enhanced, in order to achieve the following results:

  • to contribute to the enhancement of maritime and port security in Yemen, to prevent further deterioration in stability and to promote the flow of aid and trade;
  • to counter maritime crime and protect the freedom of navigation off the coast of Yemen; and
  • to assist in avoiding security vacuums post-peace agreement by supporting planning and preparations on maritime law enforcement.

The programme will progressively support YCG capacity in the three zones in which the YCG operates:

  • Gulf of Aden zone: including the Aden Container Terminal, Aden Oil Harbor and Mulla Port Arabian Sea zone: including the Ports of Al Mukalla, Ash Shihr, Nishtun, Ghaydah and the Balhaf Liquid Natural Gas Terminal.
  • The Red Sea zone: including the Ports of Saleef, Ras Issa, Hodeidah and Al-Makha.

The programme aims to promote the strengthening of the maritime law enforcement agencies (Coast Guard and Port security agencies) and the criminal justice chain, to enhance the investigation, prosecution and trial of maritime crimes and to enhance maritime and port security in Yemen. This is intended to prevent further deterioration in peace and stability. Additionally, considering the inclusion under the Ceasefire Agreements of the three Hodeidah ports, the programme aims to assist in avoiding security vacuums post-peace agreement by supporting planning and preparations on maritime law enforcement.

Building on the capacity of Yemeni rule of law institutions to play a greater role in providing maritime and port security services, the programme ideally will empower the Yemen Coast Guard and the Yemeni authorities to perform maritime law enforcement, port security under a functional rule of law framework, in a professional, sustainable and reliable manner.

Governance

A Steering Committee has the oversight of this programme, directing the overall implementation of the project. Should there be in major changes in the landscape this body will provide the strategic guidance on how to meet such challenges and with what appropriate measures. The Steering Committee will consist of the Resident Representative of UNDP, a senior representative of UNODC and representatives of contributing donors.

UNDP is the Convening Agency and will provide joint coordination support, such as convening steering committee meetings. UNDP will be accountable for the collation of narrative reports. Each agency will remain individually responsible for implementing the activities assigned to it under the Annual Workplan by the Steering Committee.

Technical coordination will take place between the lead experts of participating UN agencies.
