Kenya Maritime Authority, in collaboration with the Oil Spill Mutual Aid Group Society, Kenya Ports Authority, Team Total Energies, and Kenya Pipeline, successfully organized a sensitization workshop to strengthen Kenya’s preparedness for potential marine oil spills.
The workshop aimed to validate the revised National Oil Spill Response Contingency Plan and manuals, ensuring a robust and coordinated response in case of any emergencies.
Participants actively engaged in simulated marine oil spill emergency response scenarios, enhancing their readiness to effectively tackle real-life incidents.
With the comprehensive training and partnership among key stakeholders, Kenya’s ability to protect its marine environment and coastal communities has been bolstered significantly, reinforcing the nation’s commitment to environmental conservation and safety in its maritime activities.
