This remote assistance activity aims at providing Liberia Maritime Authority with a critical review of the draft Coastal and Marine Sensitivity Map of Liberia, including a gap analysis and agreeing on a set of recommendations.
The objectives are to:
- Assist policy makers and national authorities, responsible for oil spill preparedness and response in Liberia; and
- Provide the policy makers and national authorities with comments made by experts well versed in the field of oil spill preparedness and response, and oil spill sensitivity mapping, in order to support the policy makers and national authorities during the review process of the sensitivity map.
The international experts mandated by the GI WACAF Project have commented the draft Coastal and Marine Sensitivity Map of Liberia and presented their findings during a virtual meeting organized by the GI WACAF Project team in January 2021. Following this rich discussion, the draft Coastal and Marine Sensitivity Map of Liberia is currently being revised by the Liberia Maritime Authority.
