A major strength of Africa’s 2016 Lomé Charter on maritime security and development is its recognition that no country can singlehandedly prevent maritime threats or sustainably develop its maritime domain. The charter calls on neighbouring states and partners to work together on training, education, business and industry. Although 35 countries signed the Lomé Charter, only two have ratified it. To encourage ratification, the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and the African Union Commission are running a series of regional seminars. Speakers will highlight the substantial economic and development benefits to Africa of vibrant fishing, shipbuilding, tourism and trading industries.
