Director of Cedre.


Contributions to exchange of experience initiatives by imo emsa and regional organisations

Exchanging Experience Seminar

  • Dissemination of experience: he who faced a problem presents his decisions/actions to others, who may be interested

  • Exchange of experience: different parties, having faced problems responding to similar situations discuss their respective decisions/actions, with the aim to do better next time


Contributions to exchange of experience initiatives by imo emsa and regional organisations

Examples Seminar

  • Dissemination of experience on response the Erika spill

  • Exchange of experience on response to heavy fuel spills offshore

The limitations Seminar

  • Communicating one’s experience: focusing on the positive achievements or telling the truth to the negative points ?

  • Party to exchange with: mutual confidence and mutual interest are required

  • ►A facilitator may be needed to convince the parties concerned to join and share

The facilitators Seminar

  • International: the IMO

  • Europe: MCMP, EMSA, The Research framework and the Interreg programmes

  • Regional: HELCOM, the Bonn, Lisbon and Barcelona Agreements

  • ►Cedre is technical adviser on marine pollution management to the French delegations at all the above


Contributions to exchange of experience initiatives by imo emsa and regional organisations

IMO: the R&D Forums Seminar

  • Worldwide seminars on particular thematics attached to the trio of International Conferences IOSC (USA), SPILLCON (Australia) and INTERSPILL (Europe)

  • Ex: responding to heavy fuel oil spills, Brest, 2003

  • ►Exchanges between scientists, industry and administrations, worldwide, low frequency (next one : 2009)

  • ►Programme integrated in civil security exchanges in mid 2007


Community framework for cooperation 2000 2006
Community framework for cooperation (2000-2006) Seminar

Objectives

  • Support and supplement Member State’s efforts in the field of preparedness

  • Improve Member State’s response

  • Promote efficient mutual assistance and cooperation

    Current actions

  • Management of a three-year rolling plan (workshops, pilot projects, exercises…)

  • Community Information System (CIS)

  • Response to emergencies (via the Mechanism)


Contributions to exchange of experience initiatives by imo emsa and regional organisations

Example of MCMP achievement: the EUMAREX exchanges of experts

  • Stays of a few days to a few weeks in a selected institution of another country

  • Duration of programme: 5 years (2002-2006)

  • Total experts exchanged: 120

  • Countries first receivers: UK/Norway (18 Experts)
