Context EU funded — CRIMARIO project:
The Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace (IcSP) is the main thematic tool of the European Commission to improve security in partner countries, complementing other financial tools — in particular where geographical development instruments cannot be used. Countering global and trans-regional threats is one aspect of the work assigned to the long-term component of the Instrument.
Since 2009, the IcSP Critical Maritime Routes (CMR) Programme has focused on the security and safety of essential maritime routes in areas affected by piracy to help to secure shipping and trading lines of communication. The long-term objective addressed by the programme is to improve maritime governance. The emphasis is on capacity building at regional and trans-regional level for exchange of information, cooperation and subsequent implementation at national level.
CRIMARIO is a continuation of previous CMR projects. Its overall objective is to improve maritime security and safety with a focus to combating piracy and armed robbery at sea in the Wider Indian Ocean, around selected Indian Ocean region coastal countries. In the long term, the project will contribute to improve maritime governance.
The specific objective of this project is to improve and strengthen the interoperability of existing information sharing and communication networks to enhance Maritime Situation Awareness (MSA) in the Wider Indian Ocean. CRIMARIO is based on the assumption that MSA and information sharing are two crucial aspects in maritime security and aims to reinforce the level of cooperation among the countries of the Indian Ocean Rim (IOR). It is built around 3 components: 1) a global information sharing network, 2) a capacity building network and 3) operational policies and maritime governance.
