The objective of the five-day workshop was to emphasize the importance of regional contingency planning and the implementation of incident management systems as included in IMO’s 2012 Guidance on the Implementation of an Incident Management System (IMS). Regional cooperation on oil spill preparedness and response was enhanced through this workshop for participants of 13 Wider Caribbean countries. The workshop improved participants’ knowledge relating to oil spill preparedness, response and cooperation; and provided an opportunity to take part in practical and theoretical exercises.
