PERSGA Vision

“A Healthy environment in the red Sea and Gulf of Aden and a sustainable economic development of coastal and marine resources.”
Emergency Mutual Aid in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden ( EMARSGA )
The legal framework for EMARSGA stems from the Protocol Concerning Regional Co-operation in Combating Marine Pollution by Oil and Other Harmful Substances in Cases of Emergency (1982) together with Jeddah Convention. Under this Protocol, Emergency Mutual Aid Center in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden (EMARSGA) is to be established. A meeting at Alexandria in November 1989 decided that this would be set up at Hurgada, Egypt.
