The Contact Group on Sulu and Celebes Seas is a trilateral mechanism bringing together maritime law enforcement agencies from The Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia. The Contact Group aims to strengthen cooperation and response to maritime threats in the Sulu and Celebes Seas which include kidnap-for-ransom and facilitation of terrorism support activity. The Contact Group has established a Working Group and have identified several areas for collaborative engagement. The Global Maritime Crime Programme (GMCP) of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) supports the Contact Group as the Secretariat and supports the implementation of recommendations within the mandate of UNODC.
Last 27 October 2020, GMCP virtually convened the fourth iteration of the Contact Group meeting to map and respond to maritime crime in the Sulu and Celebes Seas.

The meeting concluded by identifying a list of four (4) proposed action items to address some of the major challenges identified.
GMCP is supporting one of the key recommendations from the Contact Group which is the facilitation of a quarterly Trilateral Coast Guard Regional Commanders Meeting (3SuluX). The meeting aims to build a shared understanding of developments in the Sulu and Celebes Seas and facilitate fluid responses to unanticipated incidents at sea by bringing together commanders at the local level.
