IALA World-Wide Academy

Capacity Building

Capacity Building

Many coastal States have a need to develop and/or reinforce their national and institutional capacity to deliver Marine Aids to Navigation services to international standards. Therefore, the Academy:

  • Conducts workshops and seminars to raise the awareness of high-level decision makers with respect to their international obligations;
  • Undertakes analytical missions to identify gaps between current practices and international standards and provides advice on how to bridge these gaps;
  • Arranges follow-up activities to review progress made towards conformance with international standards; and
  • Provides opportunities for individuals to participate in training and IALA events to raise their level of expertise and interact with other Marine Aids to Navigation professionals.
