Since 2011, Oceans Beyond Piracy has convened Working Group meetings for maritime stakeholders and experts to share information and discuss challenges and opportunities regarding how to address maritime piracy in the Western Indian Ocean and in the Gulf of Guinea. These meetings are always held under the Chatham House Rule in order to facilitate and encourage a frank and open exchange of views.

In anticipation of the African Union Extraordinary Summit on Maritime Security and Safety and Development in Africa, to be held in Lomé, Togo, on 15 October 2016, OBP convened a Working Group meeting in London to discuss the current state of maritime piracy off the east and west coasts of Africa. ISWAN / MPHRP were present at this discussion, and the attached document below provides a summary of the primary messages and observations discussed during the meeting.
