Pollution response equipment stockpiles
Cedre Information Day, 11 March 2010, Saint-Denis-La-Plaine.
Our Cedre Information Days generally adress technical or response issues. This year, our Strategic Committee was eager for our Information Day to be an opportunity to review the evolution of equipment stockpiles for response to spills in marine and fresh waters.
In order to do so, we have invited representatives of several national and international stockpiles to come and discuss this question.
The speakers have been asked to present their strategy for right-sizing and renewing their equipment stocks. Discussions will focus in particular on the complementary nature of different tiers of stockpiles, whether public or private.
