 International Maritime Organization (IMO) is continuing its work to support sustainable maritime development in Africa by participating in the opening of the African Union Extraordinary Summit on Maritime Security and Safety and Development in Africa, held in Lomé, Togo (11-15 October).

 
The Summit is addressing all aspects of maritime safety and security governance and is expected to conclude with the adoption, by African Heads of State and Government, of a Charter on Maritime Security and Safety and Development in Africa.
 
The Summit, including the "Protect Our Oceans" side event, is the latest in a line of recent events at which IMO maritime security experts have emphasized how sustainable maritime development, underpinned by good maritime security, can support economic development. 
 
IMO is represented by Gisela Vieira and Chris Trelawny.
