The MAVA Foundation has developed a new strategy for the 2016-2022 period, in which one of its key priorities is the improvement of response capabilities to pollution risks from offshore oil and gas activities, especially considering the expected intensification of offshore oil and gas activities in West Africa. As a key regional player in strengthening oil spill preparedness and response capacities, the GI WACAF Project was invited by the MAVA Foundation to contribute to the design, approval and subsequent implementation of the MA VA Foundation’s project.
GI WACAF is recognised as having a role to play in many of MAVA ’s project areas and sits on the steering committee of Strategy 3, devoted to contingency planning in the region.
The MAVA project covers 4 countries: Mauritania, Senegal, Guinea-Bissau and Sierra Leone.
