Training on Regional Ocean Governance for Mediterranean and Eastern European Countries

27.07.2009


The International Ocean Institute - Malta Operational Centre, University of Malta will host a training course on Regional Ocean Governance for Mediterranean and Eastern European Countries: Towards a holistic maritime policy. The training course is going to be organised in Malta, from 9 November to 11 December 2009. The theme of the course draws upon the conduct of maritime affairs in line with the Lisbon Strategy, targeting the Millennium Development Goals and building upon a holistic and integrated maritime policy following the principles enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

The course focuses on the linkages between the natural, social and economic sciences to the development of sustainable ocean governance, and on the research-management interface that can render governance operable. The emphasis of the course will be on the implications of the EU maritime policy for the European regional seas and the practical implementation that takes into account the particularities of seas as different and sensitive as the Mediterranean, Black, Baltic and Caspian Seas. The course aims to build stronger coherence between the EU and its acceding countries and their neighbours in their engagement in the governance of the regional seas, promoting inter-regional comparisons, shared experiences and exchange of best practice scenarios, and fostering interaction between participants from European, Eastern European, North African and Middle East countries bordering the Mediterranean.
