Corruption and piracy are eliminated through collaboration with communities. 
July 21, 2022

The Nigerian Government and a coalition of shipping stakeholders have launched a new strategy to end piracy, armed robbery, and kidnapping in the Gulf of Guinea, the world’s piracy hotspot. The strategy aims to assess the effectiveness of country-piracy initiatives and commitments in the region and identify areas of improvement.

The newly launched strategy was developed by the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), BIMCO, Intertanko, Intercargo, Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF), and representatives of the Nigerian Navy and NIMASA, together making up the NIWG.
