MesoAmerican-Caribbean Hydrographic Commission
Electronic Chart Working Group Meeting
ResultsCartagena30-31 August 2004
  • Katie Ries, Chair
  • LCDR Rafael A. Ponce, Vice-Chair

Environmental Protection and Maritime Transport
Pollution Control in the Gulf of Honduras
Project geinfrae_at_cocatram.org.ni Project
Objective To reverse the degradation of the
coastal and marine ecosystems within the Gulf of
Honduras by enhancing the prevention and control
from maritime transport-related pollution in the
major ports and navigation lanes, improving
navigational safety to avoid groundings and
spills, and reducing land-based sources of
pollution draining into the Gulf.

Environmental Protection and Maritime Transport
Pollution Control in the Gulf of Honduras Project
  • ECWG TG 1 involvement
  • Making the case for Hydrographys importance for
    environmental management and protection
  • Regional hydrographic capacity analysis and gap
    assessment
  • Input in the projects Trans-boundary Diagnostic
    Analysis
  • Active involvement in the Puerto Barrio, Belize
    City, and Tegucigalpa project preparation
    meetings

Expectations for Task Group 1 at this meeting
1
2
3
Come to agreement on implementation plan
process.
Come to agreement on outcome/product of plan.
Identify needs for each activity.

5
Develop timeline for completing the
implementation plan For hydrographic component.
Identify strategies for each need.

Key Hydrographic Objectives
Major Project Components
National Institutional Capacity Building
ACTIVITIES EXAMPLE -Determine priority ports for
surveying and/or ENC production under the
project -Define national requirements for
training, expertise, and equipment required for
hydrographic data collection, processing, paper
and ENC production, distribution, and safe
navigation. -Determine which of those
requirements could be met through a regional
(tri-national) arrangements.
9
Accomplishments
  • AGREED TO DEVELOP IMPLEMENTATION PLAN AND STARTED
    IT
  • Developed detailed list of actions related to
    building national institutional capacity,
    including
  • -Raising the level of awareness of the
    importance of hydrography
  • including reinforcing senior level visits by
    the IHB
  • -Establishment/strengthening of national
    coordination committees (example Panama,
    Guatemala)
  • Use of IHO S-55 questionnaire to
  • -assess current status of hydro survey
    charting capabilities
  • -prioritize needs
  • -identify related training needs
  • -build on national responses to determine
    trinational collaborative arrangements to
    achieve project results
  • Established linkages with IHO Capacity Building
    efforts and
  • COCATRAM

10
Task Group TwoSpecific Tasks for This Meeting
  • 1. Small-scale INT Chart ? to ENC production
  • - Small-scale ENC distribution
  • 2. ENC Distribution Options
  • 3. Priority Ports and Routes
  • - GoH Ports
  • - HYCOOP letter
  • - Alternatives for ENC production
  • 4. Training

11
Small-Scale ENCs
  • Agreed
  • INT Chart scheme will be basis for production
  • --Will use proposed French ENC cell scheme to
    address overlaps in ENC cell coverage
  • Identified HOs willing to produce INT paper
    charts and ENCs
  • Produced ENCs should undergo a consistency check
    by 3rd party (IC-ENC and Primar Stavanger have
    offered).
  • Most small-scale ENCs will be available
    free-of-charge.

Priority Ports/Routes for ENCs
  • Accomplished
  • Minor revisions in area designations
  • Added additional ports (e.g., Colombia, Cuba,
    Mexico, Suriname, USA, Venezuela)
  • Incorporated/highlighted cruise ship ports
  • Added Environmentally Sensitive Sea Areas (ESSAs)
  • Began development of a detailed table for each
    area
  • Added GoH Project Ports
  • Need
  • A more detailed map of area boundaries
  • Determine Pacific Ocean ports

14
Small-scale INT Chart Scheme
  • Recommend (to the INT Chart Committee)
  • Adopt the revised INT Chart scheme for both paper
    and ENCs
  • An additional INT chart to include Suriname
  • INT Chart coverage for Pacific coast of MACHC
    (2-3 charts)

15
ENC Distribution Options
  • Accomplished
  • Preference is for
  • a) To establish own RENC
  • b) Or, join an existing RENC
  • Designated a small Task Group to look into pros
    and cons of each option
  • Colombia
  • Cuba
  • Mexico
  • Venezuela (Chair)
  • UK Netherlands (IC-ENC) and France (Primar
    Stavanger) will assist.

16
ENC Training
  • First Step
  • Determine what are the types/level of training
    needed for a designated country(s).
  • e.g., Gulf of Honduras Project
  • Tie into capacity building.

17
Follow-on Action Items for ECWG
  • 1. Establish link between IHO and MACHC-ECWG
    websites
  • 2. For Priority Ports and Routes, prepare more
    detailed table and area map
  • 3. Contact cruise ship companies for update
  • 4. Formal requests for HYCOOP data
  • 5. All members provide S-55 response
  • 6. Set date/place for next meeting
