2004IMRF Global SAR Development Project-Africa SAR Regional Development Meetings

29 June-1 July 2017, Casablanca, Morocco was the venue for the annual meetings of the North and West Africa and West Africa Regional SAR Committees.

The three days of meetings provided an opportunity for the countries to update developments since the 2016 meeting. Mr Mohammed Drissi of Morocco, Chairman of the North and West Committee and coordinating the IMRF Global SAR Development project in Africa, provided an overview of the regional achievements over 2015-2016 with 10 Regional SAR Development Meetings, 19 SAR Training courses and 210 people trained.

"We have managed to continue the momentum of SAR training and Regional meetings provided through the support of the IMRF and the IMO Technical Cooperation Committee (IMO TCC). We have developed African SAR trainers, run regional SAR exercises (SAREX), and most importantly have extended the development activity to all 5 African Regions," said Mr Drissi, "We have also heard today of the work being done by the 14 countries attending this meeting to improve their SAR coordination structures and capabilities. We are seeing more countries establishing SAR committees and adopting national SAR Plans, which augurs well for the future of Africa SAR services."
