IMLI requires funding to enable the further consolidation of its institutional stability and security in particular to support:

IMLI and The Nippon Foundation established in 2003 a joint Project entitled “Human Resources Development Project for the Advancement of a More Effective Legal Order for the Oceans”. The aim of this common undertaking is to contribute to the promotion, adoption, effective implementation and enforcement of international maritime conventions adopted under the aegis of the United Nations and IMO, and to encourage greater participation by developing States, particularly Asian, in the major international maritime law conventions and legal instruments.
