RECP Information Sharing Centre (ISC), in cooperation with its India Focal Point, the Indian Coast Guard, recently held its 12th Capacity Building Workshop in New Delhi, India, for 19 maritime law enforcement and regulatory authorities from Asia and beyond.

The three-day Capacity Building Workshop discussed topics such as knowledge of the role and functions of ReCP Focal Points in combating piracy and armed robbery against ships; proficiency in operating the Information Network System (IFN) for timely incident reporting and sharing; presentation of case studies to share best practices and address challenges; and grasp of international maritime laws and regulatory codes as the legal basis for anti-piracy and sea robbery actions.



In addition to lectures, table-top exercises and group discussions, the Capacity Building Workshop also incorporated dialogue with India's shipping industry and visit to the facilities of Indian Coast Guard, according to a joint statement.



'One of the distinguishing features of ReCP as a government-to-government agreement is the strength of a network of ReCP Focal Points as well as our cooperation with the maritime community to collectively combat piracy and sea robbery in Asia,' said Masafumi Kuroki, executive director of ReCP ISC.



'The ReCP ISC Capacity Building Workshop provides a yearly opportunity to gather the Focal Points to pool our knowledge and experience, and we are grateful to our India Focal Point for being the host and co-organiser.'
