Since January 2015, the MAP's Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Centre for the Mediterranean Sea (REMPEC)
has been involved in the Preparedness for Oil-polluted Shoreline cleanup and Oiled Wildlife interventions – POSOW II Project, a follow up to the POSOW I Project, co-funded by the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (DG ECHO) and coordinated by the Centre of Documentation, Research and Experimentation on Accidental Water Pollution (Cedre, France).
This first POSOW II newsletter presents the project and its partners, the progress made, including the development of new technical documentation. It also contains the dates of the Train the Trainers courses scheduled in April 2016.
The POSOW II partners, namely Cedre, REMPEC, the Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale (ISPRA), the Instituto Portuario de Estudios y Cooperacion de la Comunidad Valenciana (FEPORTS), the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (AASTMT) and the General Directorate of Maritime and Inland Waters (DG-MARINWA) will produce regular newsletters to provide update on the implementation progress of the Project.
The first newsletter is now available and can be downloaded through this link.
