Experts from NATO and Colombia joined up to support the Colombian Armed Forces’ efforts in their fight against maritime piracy and narcotics, during a workshop sponsored by the NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme from 27 to 29 May in Copenhagen.
This project is the first-ever scientific activity between NATO and Colombia. In recent years, South American and Caribbean waters have seen a rise in piracy and narcotics trafficking, with Colombian maritime territory being a hot spot.
The event participants included representatives from organizations that contribute to the fight against seaborne terrorism, like the EU Maritime Analysis and Operations Center, the INTERPOL Maritime Directorate, think-tanks, navies and defense colleges from 16 countries.
