IMO Sets New Anti-Corruption Agenda.  The decision to include an anti-corruption agenda came at the latest meeting of the [International Maritime Organization’s] Facilitation Committee in response to a submission from Liberia, Marshall Islands, Norway, United Kingdom, United States and Vanuatu; the IMO will now work on a guidance document to address maritime corruption, expected to be completed by 2021.

"As updates have a positive effect on donations, organizations can increase funding by keeping donors informed on a regular basis about the campaign's progress."
