This activity is deemed ODA-eligible. The primary purpose is civilian as it concerns security measures for shipping navigation in general, and in particular commercial ships and fishing boats, which are fundamental in a Small Island Developing State highly dependent of sea resources. For the purpose of ODA reporting, coast guard in their civilian police law enforcement functions is not considered military but police, even if administered under the Ministry of Defence (see paragraph 100). In São Tomé and Príncipe, the Coast Guard and Maritime Authority is administered by the Ministry of Defence. In that context, the Portuguese Ministry of Defence was identified as the appropriate counterpart for providing the support. Only additional costs are counted as ODA.
