 International Maritime Organization (IMO)  is helping Liberia to develop a national maritime security strategy. 

The initiative got underway with a week-long fact-finding exercise (14-18 August) involving senior officials from Liberian Government departments and agencies with a stake in maritime matters. 
Based on the findings, a proposal will be presented to Liberia suggesting the best way forward. One clear objective is to encourage collaboration and a multi-agency approach to maritime security in Liberia.
Liberia is signatory to both a code of conduct dealing with maritime crime signed in Yaoundé, Cameroon in 2013 and to a memorandum of understanding between and IMO and the Maritime Organization for West and Central Africa which addresses establishment of an integrated coast guard network for the area.
