US-GH SGI Maritime Legal and Institutional Review

CEMLAWS Africa supported the development of the analytical report titled “Review of Ghana’s Maritime Legal and Institutional Framework.” The Centre undertook a comprehensive legal and institutional review of the relevant legislation, policies, practices and authorities in Ghana’s maritime security environment, which resulted in a written analytical report addressing strengths, weaknesses and challenges and opportunities. The study analyzed Ghanaian substantive legislation, policies and practices applicable or prevalent in the maritime focus area. The review covered relevant international conventions and protocols commencing with the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOSC).
