Piracy and armed robbery at sea

Theft and equipped burglary are two of the principal dangers confronting the worldwide shipping group today, be it off Somalia, in the Western Indian Ocean, 
the Gulf of Guinea, the South China Sea on the other hand somewhere else. 
In spite of various strategic, military also, different activities by numerous administrations also, administrative organizations, especially in the Indian Ocean, and the defensive measures and different activities embraced by shipowners, ship-supervisors and their agents, boats are consistently assaulted and seafarers put at danger as they go about their true blue business in global waters. 
While recognizing the activities of governments, the United Nations and the International Maritime Organization, the delivery business has perceived 
that all the more should be done to bolster seafarers and their families. In later 
a long time about 5000 seafarers have been seized and confined for a considerable length of time regularly in shocking conditions, while thousands of others have been the casualties of a privateer assault. Each day of the year more than 100,000 seafarers experience tension while cruising in, or towards, robbery swarmed waters. Their families offer these stresses, frequently with an inclination of weakness. 
Seafarers, clearly, assume a significant part in any robbery episode and the proper 
arrangements are necessary to their prosperity, and also eventually to that of 
their families, and to the general result of the episode. 
Remembering these elements, accomplice associations speaking to shipowners, 
ship-chiefs, keeping an eye on specialists, unions, back up plans and welfare affiliations, together with intergovernmental associations joined together to set up 
the Maritime Piracy – Humanitarian Reaction Program.

• broad certainty finding and input picked up from firsthand gatherings and 
interviews with seafarers and families around the world, incorporating numerous with firsthand experience of assaults and hijackings,

• the counsel and help of a venture guiding gathering. 
In its first stage the system is creating: 
• "great practice" guides for use by shipping organizations, keeping an eye on operators furthermore, welfare relationship to bolster both seafarers and seafarers' families through the three periods of a theft episode; pre-takeoff, the emergency and post-discharge/post-episode, 
• related preparing modules, 
• a global system of prepared specialists on call with proper aptitudes inside accomplice and related associations, 
• access to a system of expert aftercare, 
• a 24 hour seafarers' global phone helpline
