IMO Working Towards Brazil’s National Maritime Policy

Brazil is the latest country to benefit from IMO’s work promoting good governance practice in the maritime sector to support sustainable development. A National Workshop on Maritime Transport Policy was organised in Brasilia, Brazil (5-7 July) by IMO, in close cooperation with the Brazilian Navy.

The workshop brought together some thirty participants from a wide array of Government Ministries and Agencies whose mandate and activities impact on the maritime sector. The importance of a sound policy and related strategy for its implementation is being highlighted as a means to support and strengthen the sustainable governance and development of the maritime sector.

The participants are being familiarized with the theory of policy and the formulation process and content of a national maritime policy, with a view to safeguarding maritime safety and security, protecting the marine environment, and ensuring the effective implementation of international maritime treaties.

The maritime transport policy training programme material – which was revised and updated in 2021 by IMO with the assistance of consultants and in collaboration with World Maritime University (WMU) – is being used for the first time in a physical delivery of the workshop.

Brazil is currently developing a new National Maritime Policy reflecting and integrating all the policies related to the use of the sea. An Inter-Ministerial Committee established in 2021 is responsible for the development of this policy.

The workshop was delivered by IMO and WMU, within the framework of the IMO Integrated Technical Cooperation Programme (ITCP) and with generous funding from the Government of the People’s Republic of China.
