NAMIRS is co-financed by the European Commission DG ECHO in the framework of the EU Civil Protection Mechanism. It aims at preventing and protecting from the effects of maritime disasters in the North Adriatic Sea through better preparedness and enhanced response capacity at transnational level.
The CEI-ES is coordinating a consortium of seven partners from Croatia, Italy and Slovenia, who are elaborating specific Guidelines for the revision & update of the Sub-Regional Contingency Plan for the Adriatic Sea.
After analysing the context and the available resources and national procedures in case of oil spill, Standard Operating Procedures are outlined, as they are the subject of a dedicated training programme, and later validated in a simulation exercise at-sea. This cooperative process will result in the establishment of a ready-for-operations sub-regional mechanism at prompt disposal of North Adriatic countries and the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, transferable to the other Adriatic Ionian countries.
