This page features information about the LC/LP Technical Co-operation and Assistance Programme. Relevant resources can be found in the right hand menu.
The Technical Co-operation and Assistance Programme is governed by the Long-Term Strategy for Technical Co-operation and Assistance under the London Convention and Protocol. This Strategy was adopted at the first joint session of the Consultative Meeting under the London Convention and the Meeting of the Contracting Parties to the London Protocol in 2006. It replaced earlier versions, first developed in 2003 and revised in 2005 (see document (LC 28/15, annex 10).
Another important component of the outreach and technical assistance is the project "Identification and removal of barriers to countries achieving compliance with ocean disposal agreements", or the 'Barriers to Compliance (B2C)Project'.
A number of workshops/seminars have been held since 1998, sometimes in conjunction with meetings of the Scientific Groups under the Convention and Protocol, or, as standalone Workshops geared for a particular country or region. Some of the more recent reports can be downloaded from this page. Also, a series of powerpoint presentations used at these Workshops will shortly be made available on this page.
