star this property answer text <p>The Fusion Doctrine was established in the Government’s National Security Capability Review, published in March 2018. It created a more accountable system to support collective Cabinet decision-making, with the introduction of senior responsible owners to deliver each of the National Security Council’s (NSC) priorities. Each senior responsible owner is accountable to the NSC for the development of options and the implementation of the Government’s strategy. The Fusion Doctrine is not dependent on the holder of any post at a particular point in time.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Sub-Saharan Africa National Security Strategy Implementation Group (NSIG) is an internal governance mechanism established to oversee the development of HMG’s strategic policy priorities in Sub-Saharan Africa. It is led by a Senior Responsible Officer at Director General level. The Whitehall Africa Group (WAG) is responsible for implementing the strategic approach set out by the NSSIG for those areas of policy within its remit, including overseeing discrete country and regional strategies and acting as the Regional Board for Sub-Saharan Africa’s Conflict, Stability and Security Fund allocation. The WAG is chaired by the FCO Director for Sub-Saharan Africa, who sits as a member of the NSIG. This construct allows for a productive working relationship between the two structures, which ensures that HMG’s engagement is effectively and coherently delivered, without any duplication of effort.</p> more like this

It establishes a list of acceptable yards for ship recycling, and creates controls on ships flagged to, or calling at, the UK that are intended for recycling.</p><p> </p><p>The deadline for States to become a signatory to the Hong Kong Convention passed in August 2010. The Government’s current focus is on the effective implementation of the European Ship Recycling regime, but we will shortly turn to the implementation of the Convention, with a target of ratification in the next five years as set out in our strategy, ‘Maritime 2050: navigating the future’.</p><p> </p>
