UN Secretary-General Report on Piracy and Robbery in Somalia

UN Secretary-General Report on Piracy and Robbery in Somalia

Report of the Secretary-General on the situation with respect to piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia

In October 2016, the UN Secretary-General released a report detailing developments related to piracy and armed robbery in the Western Indian Ocean off the coast of Somalia. 

While the report praises the progress against piracy in the region, it also notes the fragile and reversible nature of these successes. As the report explains, the root causes initially responsible for piracy, to include the presence of illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, as well as the lack of economic opportunities in Somalia, remain in place.
