Discussion of UNDP support programs for the Coast Guard.
A meeting in Sana’a today, in the presence of the head of the Coast Guard Department, Major General Abdul Razzaq al-Muayyad and head of International Cooperation of the Supreme Council for the Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Manaa al-Asal, discussed the stages of the work of the project to support the Coast Guard in the Red Sea sector.
The meeting, which was by television circle in the presence of the UNDP Coast Guard Support Project Manager, the UNDP good Governance Unit representative Surayo and the Program Director Ellen Jumza, addressed aspects of the program’s support to the Coast Guard in the areas of training, capacity-building, equipment provision and reconstruction.
The meeting also touched on the mechanism of evaluating and re-equipping marine equipment with spare parts, conducting surveys and setting priorities as needed.
At the meeting, General Al-Mu’ayyad praised the efforts of the leadership of SCMCHA in the field of humanitarian and development. He praised UNDP’s interaction with the Coast Guard’s emergency needs plan, which is purely humanitarian and of a purely civilian nature.
He stressed that the Coast Guard took over the security tasks at the Red Sea ports based on the contents of the Stockholm Agreement and did not receive any support despite the difficulties and the targeting of aggression for the infrastructure and operational capabilities of the Coast Guard. He wished to start implementing the support and support program as soon as possible.
The head of the International Cooperation Department, Al Asel , considered the support project to be a key pillar for the rehabilitation of red sea ports in order to improve navigational activity as well as to restore the vital role of ports.
