The Global Initiative for West, Central and Southern Africa (GI WACAF) was launched in 2006.
The Project is a collaboration between the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and IPIECA to enhance the capacity of partner countries to prepare for and respond to marine oil spills. GI WACAF works in close cooperation with relevant national authorities in 22 African countries. By doing so, GI WACAF is contributing to a better protection of the marine environment in the region.
The Project involves 22 West, Central and Southern African Countries covering more than 13,500 kilometers of coastline.
The Project’s activities are supported and facilitated by its network of dedicated government and industry focal points.
