The Melita Foundation will be supporting the International Maritime Law Institute by providing scholarships for local and international students to participate in maritime courses related to the environment.
International Maritime Law Institute is organising the “Specialised Course on the Protection of the Marine Environment and Ocean Governance”, which focuses on protecting the marine environment within the integrated global governance of the various maritime activities. The course expands the Institute’s mission to enhance capacity-building for sustainable use of the oceans, in line with all SDGs, particularly SDG 14. Melita Foundation will be supporting the Maritime Law Institute to sponsor local participants to participate in this course. The International Maritime Law Institute’s main purpose is to assist Governments, particularly those of developing countries, to implement treaties of the International Maritime Organisation and other international legal instruments, including those relating to the human dimension in shipping. The Institute provides suitably qualified candidates with the opportunity to undertake advanced training, learning and research in international maritime law, with particular emphasis on environmental protection and ocean governance. The achievement of the goal of sustainability of the oceans and their invaluable resources requires concerted efforts by all States at the national, regional, and global level.
