WEEKLY READINGS


Week 29 Apr 2021

Piracy in the Gulf of Guinea, in 2020, revealed a continuity from previous years as well as new and emerging trends, particularly regarding the modus operandi of Pirate Action Groups (PAGs). The overview of 2020 incidents, the illustration of the threat dynamics, trends and increasing risks, will likely shape the dynamics for 2021. Also, recommendations should be made, to improve the conditions at sea and hence prevent and contain the piracy threat in the Gulf of Guinea.
