10 years of the GI WACAF project
The Global Initiative for West, Central and Southern Africa (GI WACAF project) was launched in 2006 and, in close collaboration with IMO and IPIECA, has continued to focus over the past ten years on enhancing the capacity of States to prepare for and respond to marine oil spills. The IOPC Funds have had the pleasure of regularly participating in this very worthwhile project through the provision of assistance in delivering a number of regional workshops, training, seminars and exercises.
To mark the success of the Project, which covers 22 States, IPIECA has published a special anniversary report which is available on request to IPIECA.
The IOPC Funds looks forward to continuing to collaborate with IPIECA, IMO and the relevant authorities and stakeholders in the States concerned in the future.
