The Seaport Cooperation Project (SEACOP) seeks to build capacities and strengthen cooperation against maritime trafficking in countries on the trans-Atlantic cocaine route. The project aims to reinforce capacities in seaports by supporting the setup of Joint Maritime Control Units (JMCUs) in selected countries in West Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. Activities also include the establishment of specialist Maritime Intelligence Units (MIUs) in seaports and sensitive coastal areas, and supporting greater international cooperation and information exchange. The project provides specialist search and intelligence training, along with equipment and IT tools necessary to effectively combat illicit maritime trafficking.
The project is implemented by a Consortium of EU Member States led by FIIAPP (La Fundación Internacional y para Iberoamérica de Administración y Políticas Públicas).
