2 19th MACHC Conference 27 November 2018 IHO resolution: 2/1997 versus 1/2005 (1) Resolution 2/1997: ESTABLISHMENT OF REGIONAL HYDROGRAPHIC COMMISSIONS (RHC). Resolution 1/2005: IHO RESPONSE TO DISASTERS. Both being rewritten. 3 19th MACHC Conference

27 November 2018 IHO resolution: 2/1997 versus 1/2005 (2) RHC iaw 2/1997: are intended to provide regional coordination with regard to nautical information, hydrographic surveys, production of nautical charts and documents, training, technical cooperation and hydrographic capacity building projects. MACHC statutes: Commission shall have an advisory, scientific and technological character; it shall not exert any authority over the Hydrographic Services Is to promote cooperation in hydrographic surveying, marine cartography and nautical information. Has no executive remit. Chair as a function has no Command & Control role. 4 19th MACHC Conference

27 November 2018 IHO resolution: 2/1997 versus 1/2005 (3) IHO resolution 1/2005 (currently). Has seemly overlapping responsibilities of Coastal state, RHC and IHO secretariat. What form does responsibility for co-ordinating the actions needed within the Region take. A disaster reaction organisation with a structured, C2 type, organisation or a organic cooperation structure? Rewrite recognizes comments made during A1. Proposal was too prescriptive and contained descriptions beyond the roles and/or scopes of RHCs and the IHO. Rewrite encourages support activity by RHCs but with a strong responsibility for the coastal state to invoke them.

5 19th MACHC Conference 27 November 2018 Case study passage Matthew: NL survey Haiti Survey operations in support of humanitarian relief operations after hurricane Matthew. Main objective: accessibility of ports and landing spots for loading and unloading of relief goods. Hydrographic capacity: Two qualified hydrographic officers and one boat driver Rhib equipped with integrated multi beam system, SSS, SV profiler. Use of Ellipsoid Referenced Surveying (ERS).

SSS less used due to the expeditionary character. ERS provided a stable height reference. Coupling of ERS reference to chart datum via

predicted tide. Good SV profile is vital for small vertical uncertainty Bathymetry within special order standard. All survey results have been made available for Haiti authorities. 13 19th MACHC Conference 27 November 2018

Chair activity: Hurricane Matthew Provide narrative for common situational awareness. Dependant on input for the members. No own active data collection. Facilitate as and where required. Investigate and promulgate relief demand of affected countries. Collect availability of potential capacities for disaster response in theatre. Means: e-mail. Sitrep and direct. 14 19th MACHC Conference

27 November 2018 Identified lessons: Hurricane Matthew (1) Set realistic ambitions for remit MACHC Restrict coordination/cooperation to Hydrography. Do not assume executive responsibilities of others, eg. NAVAREA coordinator. Role is that of broker for demand and supply. Input of support requirement by coastal state essential. What do you need? Chair is facilitator and provides the shared narrative. Who is doing what? The Chair cannot absorb MS responsibilities for Diplomatic clearance to deploy hydrographic assets. 15

19th MACHC Conference 27 November 2018 Identified lessons: Hurricane Matthew (2) Adapt a phased approach. Immediate disaster response. Main focus is supporting other activities as an enabler. Recovery response. Main focus is updating charts and hydrographic information. Civil communications are paramount: E-mail, Telephone, Website, including a common coordination area.

Organisation was ad hoc and organic. No direct insight in activities of IOs and NGOs. 16 19th MACHC Conference 27 November 2018 X-check IHO resolution 1/2005 Aim: have procedures and guidelines in place to enable immediate and appropriate response. Procedures and guidelines MACHC Immediate assessment of damage wrt. safety of navigation

Immediately inform of damage and dangers wrt. navigational hazards Re-establish the basic key maritime transport routes Ensure chart and Hydrographic information is updated ASAP 17

19th MACHC Conference 27 November 2018 Identify lessons: IHO resolution 1/2005 Procedures and guidelines Role MACHC ? Immediate assessment of damage wrt. safety of navigation Coastal States/IO/ NGO Immediately inform of damage and dangers wrt. navigational hazards

WWNWS Re-establish the basic key maritime transport routes As enabler for Immediate disaster relief Ensure chart and Hydrographic information is updated ASAP For recovery phase 18

19th MACHC Conference 27 November 2018 Way forward (2016) Include the principles of MACHC disaster response in the Statutes of the MACHC based on lessons identified. Include as particular aim in the Statutes: To examine the role hydrography can play in disaster risk reduction, for instance by capacity building. Do not write a priori detailed a MACHC Disaster action , plan. but

IHO secretariat consider to ensure hydrographic plug ? ins in contingency plans of standing Disaster relief organisations as UN OHCA, IRC, WHO, OXFAM, etc. 19 19th MACHC Conference 27 November 2018 Way forward (2018) Do not write a priori detailed a MACHC Disaster action plan. But: Preparatory frame work (GIS, etc) Communications/Complan Contact details al relevant parties: HO, MIL-CIV, IO, NGO etc
