Regional WIMA associations

 

Since 1988, the International Maritime Organization (IMO), as a United Nations specialized agency, launched a programme for the Integration of Women in the Maritime Sector (IWMS). The programme facilitated the launch of regional associations for women managers in the maritime and port sectors. To-date, the following Women in Maritime (WIMA) associations have been established:
