 A national workshop on the treaty covering dumping of wastes at sea, the London Protocol, is being held in Luanda, Angola (30-31 May). 

The workshop is raising awareness among stakeholders on the practical aspects of effective implementation of the London Protocol to protect the marine environment from the dumping of harmful wastes at sea.
With more light being shed on the dramatic impact of marine litter on coastal areas, this workshop is yet another example of how International Maritime Organization (IMO)  is tackling this problem.
Angola ratified the London Protocol in 2006 and this workshop is bringing a special focus on the actions to be taken at the national level to fully implement all its provisions.
Over 50 participants from government agencies and the port sector are attending the event in the Port of Luanda. 
The workshop is being conducted in Portuguese and English and is facilitated by IMO's Andrew Birchenough with the support of an expert provided by the Government of Brazil.
