ITOPF was invited to support a workshop aimed at operationalising national oil spill contingency planning, held in Nairobi, Kenya from 1-3 May 2019. The event was organised by the government of Norway’s Oil for Development (OfD) programme, in conjunction with IMO and UNEP, and attended by representatives of national and local government from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Mozambique, Lebanon and Iraq. Mark Whittington presented on a variety of spill-related topics at the three-day workshop and also ran an adaptation of ITOPF's claims handling desktop exercise. The delegates were highly engaged, and each country left with an action plan of tasks required to further their contingency planning.
