Under the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the Global Maritime Crime Programme (GMCP) for Southeast Asia and the Pacific is committed to enhancing maritime law enforcement capacity across the region to uphold safe and stable order at sea. Amongst the variety of activities that have been specifically designed to support maritime law enforcement agencies in countering maritime crime, GMCP also encourages white hull diplomacy through greater regional coordination.
Currently, GMCP achieves this goal of broader regional coordination by facilitating several regional dialogues that cater to specific elements of maritime law enforcement. These dialogues gather maritime law enforcement agencies and experts from across Southeast Asia to reflect on emerging developments and capabilities in countering maritime crime at sea. Amongst these dialogues are the Forum on National Maritime Fusion Centres (FNMFC) which seeks to enhance regional capability and complementarity in aligning various sources of maritime domain awareness, the Contact Group on the Sulu and Celebes Seas (CGSCS) which gathers key maritime law enforcement agencies in a triborder area to reflect on shared emerging threats, the Forum on Maritime Trafficking Routes – Southeast Asia (MTR-SEA) that aims to build capacity and shed awareness on the exploitation of maritime routes, and the Maritime Law Enforcement Dialogue (MLED) that offers a premium platform for maritime law enforcement agencies to develop collaborative solutions and advance greater regional diplomacy. These dialogues target a variety of maritime law enforcement officers, maritime domain awareness experts, and prosecutors from maritime law enforcement agencies across Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Viet Nam.
To enhance the impact of these regional dialogues, external communication is critical to showcase the progress of efforts achieved through these discussions. Broader communication will contribute towards raising the profile of these dialogues, effectively shaping policy, engaging more stakeholders, and in mobilizing more resources towards upholding safety at sea.
In line with this objective, GMCP-UNODC would like to procure the service of a Media Expert with photographic and videographic skills to raise public awareness and the outreach impact of the regional dialogues under GMCP. The products produced by the Media Expert will be showcased on digital media and social media platforms to engage stakeholders and promote a greater understanding of GMCP’s work in Southeast Asia.
The use of digital content to promote achievements achieved through regional dialogues will further establish GMCP’s role as a critical infrastructure in advancing white hull diplomacy in Southeast Asia amongst maritime law enforcement agencies. While most regional dialogues seek to engage specific maritime security stakeholders, digital content will enable these critical conversations to continue beyond the dialogues and amongst other sectors that are equally committed to advancing a safe and stable order at sea.
Duties and Responsibilities
Under the overall guidance of the team, the Media Expert will work closely with the Communications team and/or Programme team to produce enriching engaging content for GMCP’s platforms. In particular, the consultant will capture events and subjects engaged in regional dialogues and accompanying activities. These events will be captured through both photography and videography that will contribute to a digital portfolio which will be transformed into eye-catching and creative online content and press coverage.
The Media Expert will be responsible to capture events and produce content that is designed to accurately and attractively showcase GMCP’s achievements in its regional dialogues and associated activities.
