The International Maritime Organization (IMO) is working tirelessly to solve the Red Sea crisis caused by Yemen's Houthi rebels, who have launched attacks against ships in the region. The IMO is coordinating action to ensure a safe maritime environment and to minimize disruptions to global trade. Many shipowners have chosen to avoid the Red Sea, opting for longer routes around southern Africa, which increases costs. The IMO's objective is to provide practical measures for ships to continue operating despite the challenges.
