The Shared Awareness and Deconfliction (SHADE) initiative began in 2008 as a mechanism of meetings aimed at coordinating and de-conflicting activities between the countries and coalitions involved in military counter-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden and the western Indian Ocean. The meetings are held in Bahrain at regular intervals and are co-chaired on a rotational basis by the Coalition Maritime Forces (CMF), NATO, and EUNAVFOR. Since the beginning in 2008, military and civilian representatives from 27 countries, 14 international organizations, the maritime industry and several governments have joined the meetings.
