"Throughout this paper it has been the goal to identify the root causes of the piracy crisis in Somalia, how the crisis itself has transformed over time, efforts to respond to it, and the extent of success. The greatest component that enables all other activities to accelerate the piracy issue in Somalia is the fact that Somalia can be classified as a failed state. The paper concluded there is the need to restore a central government in Somalia. An effective central government in charge of the country will help restore some stability and political security in the country. Secondly, the international community should have an effective roaster for naval ships that escort the ships of the WFP to enable them to safely deliver food and humanitarian aid to the people of Somalia. In addition to the WFP, commercial ships could also be escorted by the naval ships."
