The Global Initiative for West, Central and Southern Africa.
Launched in 2006, the Global Initiative for West, Central and Southern Africa (GI WACAF Project) is a partnership between the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and IPIECA, the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues.
The mission is to strengthen oil spill preparedness and response capability in 22 West, Central and Southern countries, from Mauritania to South Africa. A key innovative feature is to emphasis the promotion of public/private partnership for effective oil spill response, making use of existing industry expertise and resources.
The GI WACAF Project is jointly funded by IMO and 9 oil companies through IPIECA (BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ENI, ExxonMobil, Marathon, PERENCO, Shell and Total).
