Messaging and Advocacy

Ongoing activity
  • The World Bank’s Pirate Trails report has a broad application, and can be used to address the growth of piracy off the West African coast. The World Bank encourages the tracking and disrupting the financial flows of piracy-related activity, as this facilitates the detection of pirate financiers, intermediaries, investors and beneficiaries.
