Ocean Jigsaw Puzzle Piece Series: Human Resource Training and Networking [2018年01月17日(Wed)]

*This blog post was originally uploaded in
Japanese to OPRI's blog
on October 12, 2016.

---

For the second piece of the puzzle, I would like to
introduce the WMU Sasakawa Fellowship in-aid
Program
, which this foundation operates with
support from The Nippon Foundation.

While many people may immediately recognize
WMU, for those of you who do not, it is short for
the World Maritime University, a graduate
university in Malmo, Sweden, which was founded in
1983 by the International Maritime
Organization
(IMO).

The IMO is a UN agency that promotes international
cooperation in relation to maritime issues.
Since 1987, four years after the foundation of the
university, The Nippon Foundation has been
providing scholarships to promote human resource
training for those who will be future leaders in the
maritime and marine fields. Eligible candidates for
these scholarships include young people from the
Asia-Pacific region who are involved in maritime
administration. Thus far, The Nippon Foundation
has provided support for 582 young people from
70 nations. After graduating, these young people
take on key roles in government agencies,
educational institutions, and other similar
organizations in their own countries, and play
active leadership roles in the maritime and marine
fields.

The WMU Sasakawa Fellowship in-aid Program
provides financial support not only for human
resource training, but also for another key pillar
in the form of a network of Sasakawa-funded
graduates (Sasakawa Fellows). In September 2016,
a gathering of enrolled Sasakawa Fellowship
students was held at WMU. This gathering can be
considered the foundation from which students
build their networks. This event was held to provide
the students with a place where they can interact
with each other, to have them discuss the benefits
and possibilities of a network of Sasakawa Fellows,
to encourage them to be aware of their positions as
Sasakawa Fellows, and to voluntarily take part in
building a post-graduation network.
We believe that this event is a starting point for
enrolled Sasakawa Fellowship students to gain
mutual awareness of each other, and to give their
Sasakawa Fellows network a more solid form
after graduation.

Since its founding, WMU has accepted students
from roughly 50 countries every year. Living in
such a multicultural environment is one of the
unique features of WMU. By sharing their lives
with students from diverse cultures, customs,
religions, and beliefs, students learn how to build
relationships founded on mutual trust, which may
prove to be a vital key that enables them to solve
commonly shared issues extending beyond the
borders of countries and organizations. I wish
these students the utmost success in the future.

Report: International Seminar on Sustainable Use of the Northern Sea Route [2016年02月22日(Mon)]
The Ocean Policy Research Institute, the Sasakawa Peace Foundation (OPRI-SPF) held the "International Seminar on Sustainable Use of the Northern Sea Route" on February 4th in Tokyo as part of the "Development of a strategy for sustainable use of the Northern Sea Route" project, which is supported by the Nippon Foundation.

Regarding the current state of the Northern Sea Route, the conditions necessary for its stable use are yet to be put in place, due not only to technological issues but also to complications involving external factors such as international politics and economic conditions. While ship transit numbers, the focus of early attention, have made little progress, ship services in support of the development and exploration of Russia's natural resources have been active, resulting in a steady increase in ship traffic on the Northern Sea Route.

In this seminar which was held following the successful seminars of 2013 and 2014, experts from Arctic countries, including Mr. Alexander Olshevskiy, head of the Northern Sea Route Administration (NSRA), the federal state institution of Russia, provided the latest information about the NSR and discussed the mid- to long- term prospects of the NSR in view of the changing global situation. Also, we included presentations and a discussion by domestic experts on Japan's usage strategies for the NSR, taking into consideration the Arctic Ocean Policy adopted last October.

Please see the Sasakawa Peace Foudation website for the conference program and presentation materials of panelists.

The Sasakawa Peace Foundation (SPF) held the "International Conference on Energy Cooperation between Russia and Japan" on November 6th in Tokyo as part of the "Development of a strategy for sustainable use of the Northern Sea Route" project, which is supported by the Nippon Foundation.

In the conference, which focused on energy development in the Arctic and coastal areas of Russia and on the NSR as a sea-lane for energy resource transport, SPF invited key persons and experts from leading energy companies and research institutes, including Mr. Igor Sechin, President of Rosneft, the largest oil company in Russia. From the Japan side, Mr. Takayuki Ueda, Vice-Minister for International Affairs, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), and other public and private sector experts were in attendance.

After keynote speeches from Mr. Sechin and Mr. Ueda, panelists discussed possible future collaboration in energy development in a discussion session moderated by Mr. Ichiyo Ishikawa, NHK Executive Commentator. In the afternoon, invited experts made presentations and participated in three panel sessions, "Arctic Sea-lane -Northern Sea Route-", "Pipeline & LNG", and "Power Grid and Others." The presentations and discussions were encouraging from the perspective of future new developments concerning both countries. The number of applications exceeded the venue's capacity, reflecting the high interest among Japanese participants for this theme.

Please see the Sasakawa Peace Foudation website for the conference program and presentation materials of panelists.
