The Gulf of Guinea has been described as the “most insecure waterway globally” where acts of piracy and armed robbery represent more than a quarter of worldwide reported attacks.
This SAMI hosted seminar led by industry experts will explore the use of private maritime security companies in the Gulf of Guinea. The Seminar will explore the legal, geopolitical, strategic, operational and tactical threads to provide clarity and an industry standardised response to the issue.
SAMI and Oceans Beyond Piracy are collaborating to bring clarity to this difficult scenario and to make sense of maritime security in the Gulf of Guinea.
Expert Analysis from Chatham House will explore the effect of situations ashore and how they influence events across the Gulf of Guinea.
The European External Action Services will cover the European Commission’s Critical Maritime Routes in the Gulf of Guinea Programme (CRIMGO).
Shipping industry representatives will cover the Maritime Trade Information Sharing Centre (MTISC-GoG), reporting procedures and shipping industry guidelines for protection against piracy.
There will also be an insight on current PMSC activities across the region, presented by Risk Intelligence.
