New Report Identifies Challenges and Opportunities for Maritime Security in the Bay of Bengal

Maritime Security Report - Bay of Bengal

Stronger governance requires collaborative efforts from regional actors who want to address maritime security challenges in the Bay of Bengal

Over the course of the past year, OEF’s Stable Seas program partnered with the UN Office and Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Global Maritime Crime Programme and the Observer Research Foundation to report on the challenges and opportunities facing maritime security in the Bay of Bengal. The resulting report is unique in that it takes a comprehensive approach to maritime security, examining trends across nine diverse elements of maritime security and governance and focuses largely on the connections between these issues.

Our findings present a clear case that through targeted financial investment, policy implementation, and political will, the region can build collective security and prosperity in the Bay of Bengal.
