Liberia  

2024 

A GI WACAF funded project to assist the maritime authorities of Liberia finalise and validate their first national pollution contingency plan. The support is provided through : GIS training workshop to all government stakeholders, field exercises to create operational and tactical response maps, and the provision of oil spill response training to all relevant government stakeholders.
