The Solomon Islands Maritime Safety Administration (SIMSA) needs further technical assistance (TA) to enable it to become an entity that is capable of addressing the changing environment in the international maritime community. The proposed TA will assess current organizational structure, job description, functionalities and recommend an appropriate restructuring model for SIMSA. It will introduce new divisions and job functions as suitable to meet administrative, safety and security, aids to navigation, hydrography, marine search and rescue and environmental obligations as required by IMO and UNCLOS and other international maritime conventions and organisations where Solomon Islands is a signatory. The proposed TA will recommend and provide an intensive training program for the restructured SIMSA staff to better educate on the reforms and enhance ownership and long term implementation of the reforms in line with international standards. Relevant training programs will be proposed for ship owners and stakeholders to improve awareness on the requirements in the international maritime community and need to align with reforms in SIMSA.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
