The Contact Group on Piracy has just launched a website which compiles a number of very useful resources. It is described as follows:
Pursuant to UN Security Council Resolution 1851, the Contact Group on Piracy off the Coast of Somalia (CGPCS) was established on January 14, 2009 to facilitate the discussion and coordination of actions among states and organizations to suppress piracy off the coast of Somalia. This international forum has brought together more than 60 countries and international organizations all working towards the prevention of piracy off the Somali coast.
According to the U.S. Dept. of State, the website is operated by the Republic of Korea with support from the United States and United Kingdom.
