Component 7 - Mediterranean Coast Guard Functions Forum
Under this task support will be provided to the MCGFF to pursue its objectives in order to enhance cooperation and information sharing among member states and third countries in their effort to detect, monitor, deter and intercept transnational maritime threats to the global safety, security, economy and environment. This should lead to an enhanced coordination of all institutions and bodies involved which, in the current period of political instability in some areas of the region, will contribute to prevent the loss of human lives at sea as well as to develop a more effective cooperation among member states and third countries of the Mediterranean Sea in matters related to maritime safety, security and environmental protection.
• Assistance to the MCGFF;
