SIGLA’s rationale for the deliberate maritime focus stems from the rising maritime agenda of the African Union related to the benefits, threats and vulnerabilities in African waters. This African agenda ties in with Operation Phakisa of the South African government that cites the importance for South Africa to unlock the potential of its surrounding blue economy in pursuit of deeper and wider development. This focus relies upon maritime governance and security at sea off Africa in order to unlock the maritime public goods of political, economic and social interests for South Africa, but to the wider international community as well.
