Promoting spill prevention and response in Western Mediterranean


REMPEC facilitated the organization of the Fifth Meeting of the competent national authorities in charge of the implementation of the Sub-Regional Contingency Plan between Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia for the Preparedness for and Response to Marine Pollution from Ships for the South-Western Mediterranean, held in Algiers, Algeria from 27 to 28 November.

The meeting fell within REMPEC’s continuous efforts to implement a solid framework for mutual assistance and cooperation in case of marine pollution from ships in the Mediterranean. It was attended by more than 150 representatives from Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, as well as from the Unites Nations and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). As facilitator, REMPEC helped further collaboration and exchange of experience between the South-Western Mediterranean Contingency Plan, and the RAMOGE Agreement, a similar regional cooperation framework between France, Italy and Monaco which has been in place for more than 40 years.
