West MOPoCo (Western Mediterranean region marine Oil & HNS Pollution Cooperation) is a European project involving 12 partners as well as the Principality of Monaco on its own funding.
In addition to project management and communication, 4 other work packages have been defined:
- development and update of pollution response support tools: HNS response guidelines, tools such as REMPEC’s Maritime Integrated Decision Support Information System (MIDSIS-TROCS) and the Mediterranean Emergency Reporting System (MedERSys).
- assessment of the National Contingency Plans of the countries involved and, if necessary, the establishment of recommendations to improve them.
- study of international cooperation mechanisms for emergency procedures in this area and the reinforcement of synergies between countries in the event of a Spill.
- organisation of regional workshops and training courses on the use of the developed or updated tools and procedures.
