Phase I

From 2015-2018, Denmark supported the EU-led “Gulf of Guinea Inter-regional Network” (GoGIN) with the objective of securing the Gulf of Guinea and promoting the blue economy in West Africa. This included support for the Yaoundé process, initiated by the 22 member states of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the Gulf of Guinea Commission (CGG).

The European GoGIN project aimed to:

  • Improve the collection and sharing of information between West African coastal states on maritime activities in the Gulf of Guinea;
  • Support national maritime organisations in West African countries by assisting them in the implementation of maritime strategies;
  • Provide support to the regional maritime centres in West Africa to ensure better coordination and cooperation between neighbouring countries to enhance safety and security in the Gulf of Guinea.
