Environmental Survey of Ogoniland: Project document
United Nations Environment Programme

In July 2006, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) received a formal request from the Government of Nigeria for “Supervision of Remediation of the Cleanup of Oil Contamination in Ogoniland”. In order to understand the context of the request and expectations from the Government, UNEP's Executive Director sent a mission to Nigeria. Following the initial scouting mission, a technical mission was sent to the River State to meet with the local government and stakeholders to explain to them the scope of the assessment and obtain their reaction. The team undertook an aerial reconnaissance over the entire area and ground-truthing visits to selected areas. The team also visited the SPDC office to collect various documents and maps related to Ogoniland oil fields. This project document is prepared based on the inputs received during the field visits.

Project Document: The Western Indian Ocean Large Marine Ecosystems Strategic Action Programme Policy Harmonisation and Institutional Reforms (WIO LME SAPPHIRE)
United Nations Environment Programme, Global Environment Facility, United Nations Development Programme

This Project builds on the previous work completed under the UNDP supported GEF financed Agulhas and Somali Current Large Marine Ecosystems (ASCLME) Project in close collaboration with a number of partners. The ASCLME Project delivered the intended regional TDA and ministerially endorsed SAP for the western Indian Ocean LMEs as well as individual Marine Ecosystem Diagnostic Analyses (MEDAs) for each participating country. The ASCLME Project also created the Western Indian Ocean Sustainable Ecosystem Alliance (WIOSEA). The SAPPHIRE Project aims to support and assist the appropriate and formally mandated government institutions and intergovernmental bodies in the region to implement the activities which they require in order to deliver the SAP and to ensure sustainability of efforts and actions toward long-term management of activities within the LMEs as well as the sustainability of associated institutional arrangements and partnerships. The project’s activities have several cross-cutting themes, which will seek to meaningfully address progress towards meeting UNDP goals and targets with respect to sustainable development, poverty alleviation, early warning of disaster and climate change, SDGs, gender mainstreaming and youth. Throughout the implementation, the project will coordinate closely with the UNDEP GEF WIOLaB SAP project with the intention of harmonizing activities and ultimately combining institutional and administrative process for a single implementation strategy for the two WIO SAPs
