As part of its cooperation with the Global Initiative for West, Central and Southern Africa (GI WACAF Project), the IOPC Funds have been invited to deliver a national workshop on the international liability and compensation regime for oil spills. The workshop will take place in Lagos, Nigeria, during the week of 9 September 2019.
The objective of this three-day workshop is to provide training on preparedness and response challenges and issues related to the implementation of the regime. The IOPC Funds will cover all aspects, including the legal framework and claims assessment process. GI WACAF is a joint project between IMO and the oil industry, through IPIECA, aimed at improving the level of preparedness and response to oil spills in the Western and Central Africa region (www.giwacaf.net).
