New Concept Note on Maritime Security in Seychelles published

The Seychelles provides a particularly interesting case study as an archipelagic Small Island Developing State (SIDS) in which oceans policy for sustainable development and maritime security are core drivers of the governmental agenda.

To illuminate these important issues, SAFE SEAS has published a new Concept Note on Maritime Security in Seychelles that examines how Seychelles regulates its maritime spaces, what maritime security threats it identifies as priority issues and how the country organises its maritime sector.

The concept note illuminates how maritime security is extremely important for a SIDS such as the Seychelles. It is affected by localised issues, such as sustainable development and the protection of biodiversity, but also by wider maritime insecurity in the Western Indian Ocean, such the threat of Somali based piracy.
