COVID-19 Update : MOIG remains fully operational

Last Update 15/02/2021

Despite the current situation related to COVID-19, MOIG remains fully operational. We have been working remotely since the pandemic struck. However, in light of the gradual improvement to the situation in Tunisia and the easing of some restrictions, the MOIG Director returned to work on 02 May 2020 in the office on a regular basis.

New strains of COVID-19 impacted Tunisia and several countries during the month of January 2021; thus led to extend the suspension of events and gatherings to 07h March 2021; in order to mitigate the spread of Corona virus.

MOIG continued to monitor the situation related to COVID-19 closely with members and technical partners exploring ways to set new dates for the events supposed to happen last year and have been postponed for this year. After consultation with ANPE, Cedre and REMPEC, it was agreed to organize jointly the one-day Training Session on Readiness Evaluation Tool for Oil Spills (RETOS) and the Regional Workshop on Oil Spill Waste Management. The provisional dates of the two events have been set as follows:

  1. The one-day Training Session on RETOS; will take place on 15 June 2021, in Hammamet-Tunisia
  2. The Regional Workshop on Oil Spill Waste Management; will be held on 16-17 June 2021; in Hammamet-Tunisia

At the same time, MOIG conducted discussions with ATRAC and JANAF in order to fix a new provisional date for the Regional Workshop on Enhancing Oil Spill Preparedness and Response in the Adriatic and Mediterranean Regions. After discussions, it was agreed to set the date of this event from 26 to 28 October 2021; in Opatija-Croatia.

On the other hand the Management Committee is very pleased to announce that the General Assembly Meeting is expected to be held on 29 October 2021; in Opatija-Croatia; in conjunction with the Regional Workshop on Enhancing Oil Spill Preparedness and Response in the Adriatic and Mediterranean regions.

More details on these events will be provided to you in due course.
