Participating countries: Anguilla, Saint Martin and Sint Maarten. Description: The National Oil Spill Contingency Plan (NOSCP) is one of the foundations for an effective and sustainable oil spill preparedness and response framework. The workshop aims to assist in the further development of the NOSCP's in Sint Maarten, Saint Martin and Anguilla in collaboration with key government agencies and stakeholders involved in responding to oil pollution incidents. Whilst they are two separate countries, Sint Maarten in the south and Saint Martin to the north, they are both located on the same 33 sq mi island, with Anguilla a separate island less than 10 km north. Each Country has their own response structure, national legislation and contingency plans. This can be problematic as any significant oil spill will most likely impact all three territories and require a high degree of cooperation and coordination between them. The implementation of a national workshop to review and discuss the respective national oil spill contingency plans paired with a comprehensive table-top and discussion-based exercise will help the countries to more effectively respond in the event of an actual spill.
