Assistance to authorities

Cedre develops contingency plans for local and regional authorities, both in France and abroad.

Across the globe Cedre works in compliance with national and local legislation and in cooperation with the relevant administrations and organisations which it meets during on-site assignments.

Several meetings are also held, in order to gather information and clarify the distribution of responsibilities. These workshops also provide the opportunity to build a national network of stakeholders involved in response preparedness, thus promoting a shared understanding and synergy in case of a spill.

The plans can be supplemented with:

  • a sensitivity atlas,
  • assistance in policy development (for instance on dispersant use) or resource development (setting up a resource centre),
