In November 2019 IPIECA hosted a first dedicated industry workshop on wildlife response preparedness in Nicosia, Cyprus. The workshop was designed and facilitated by Sea Alarm along with other partners from the Global Oiled Wildlife Response System (GOWRS) Project, and with oversight from an industry steering group. 

Over the course of three days, nine IPIECA/OSRL Member companies along with representatives from OSRL, IPIECA and REMPEC actively explored the past, present and the desired future regarding wildlife response preparedness. Through table-tops and group exercises, a series of recommendations were developed for future actions to implement tiered preparedness for wildlife response as described in IPIECA’s 2014 Good Practice Guide.  

This set of recommendations provided a roadmap for implementing wildlife response preparedness over the coming years and was summarised and illustrated as a ‘Preparedness Wheel’ - a concept developed by Sea Alarm and the Industry Steering Group for the purposes of the event. 

This webinar will provide an overview of the preparedness recommendations from the Cyprus workshop and an introduction to the preparedness wheel concept then use real-world case studies to demonstrate how this process has been used and applied in a variety of country and regional contexts.
