Prestige and international cooperation

Cedre Information Day, 9 March 2006, Paris

To face a major pollution, in the open sea, and threatening several countries, resorting to international cooperation’s mechanisms is a necessity today. After those of the Erika and Ievoli Sun, the Prestige incident benefited a quick implementation of the existing bilateral or multilateral agreements between Spain, France and the other european countries.
Whether it is a question of information, or use of techniques and aerial, maritime or land means, we have now sufficient hindsight to draw conclusions and learn of that wide-ranging cooperation, and that in terms of mobilization, implementation, cost and performance.
In the tradition of its Information days, the Cedre has gathered the actors of that cooperation to implement constructive discussions and to strengthen the confident relations established during the Prestige operations. Mutual confidence between cooperation partners is essential: it is a determining factor of success
