Controlling marine pollution
Fighting against marine pollution

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) is a specialized agency of the UN. One of IMO's primary functions is to control pollution from ships and craft operating in the marine environment. Several bodies within the IMO structure concern themselves with this, and they are the Marine Protection Committee (MEPC) and the Marine Safety Committee (MSC).
