France support to Sunderbans oil Spill response

In response to the request from the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh, France has joined the international initiative coordinated by UNDP, and has mobilized its expertise to contribute to cleanup efforts of the Sunderbans, after the oil spill which took place on 9 December 2014.

The intervention of the French Centre for documentation, research and experiments on accidental water pollutions (CEDRE) has been possible thanks to Ms Segolène Royal, French Minister for Environment, Sustainable Development and Energy. Two French experts of the CEDRE are coming in Bangladesh to help establishing a state of the pollution and to define adequate methods for pollution control.
