The MARENDA project pursues a dual objective:

The development of a “regional port database interchange mechanism”, by boosting the quality and the exchange of data collected by port authorities on the movement and position, specifications, cargo and crew.
Harmonizing port databases so they conform to international standards will make it possible to exchange data between different port authorities and nations in the region.

The establishment of emergency response mechanisms to address environmental pollution in coastal waters and port basins.
Participating nations will aim to set up a regional marine emergency response protocol to jointly address marine spills of hazardous substances. A common action plan and the sharing of pollution-control equipment will yield more effective pollution control in coastal waters.

Taking part in MARENDA are the countries of Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria and Senegal. The work is carried out with the support of the Regional Maritime University in Accra and the Académie Régionale des Sciences et Techniques de la Mer in Abidjan.
