The United States Coast Guard (USCG) and the Guyana Civil Defence Commission (CDC), with support from the United States Department of State’s Energy and Mineral Governance Program (EMGP), began a six-month series of joint activities designed to assist Guyana in the development of a reliable national response system and enhance the CDC’s maritime oil spill prevention, planning, and response capabilities.

In a press release, the US Embassy here said a virtual risk assessment workshop is scheduled for this month to build upon the progress Guyana has already made with the development of their National Oil Spill Contingency Plan and oil spill response capabilities.
The USCG facilitators will guide the participants through an assessment of possible oil spill scenarios in Guyana to identify the most likely and most consequential scenarios. The results will be used to identify possible improvements and updates Guyana’s National Oil Spill Contingency Plan. Other activities in 2022 will include virtual exercise program management training and in-person exchanges to observe oil spill response exercises. This partnership is part of the continued U.S. support for energy governance and commitment to regional security to help Guyana build its disaster response capabilities.
