Cedre is conducting a survey for ports concerned by the traffic of hazardous materials to obtain information on oil and chemical spill response in ports.
The survey can be accessed here.
IRA-MAR project on “Improving the Integrated Response to pollution Accident at sea & chemical risk in port”, co-funded by DG ECHO and coordinated by France’s General Secretariat for the Sea, aims to support countries in the Western Mediterranean and Atlantic regions (Spain, France, Italy, Malta, Morocco, Portugal and Tunisia) in improving preparedness for marine pollution events, including the risks related to traffic in ports of hazardous and noxious substances.
As part of this project, Cedre has been tasked with conducting a survey. The aim of this survey is to gain insight into spill preparedness and response arrangements in ports, and to identify interesting experiences to share but also improvement opportunities which could be developed in future projects.
