With support from MAVA Foundation through PRCM, CSSL concluded a one-day training for environmental CSOs and media practitioners on the challenges of oil and gas activities and environmental risks in Freetown. The training, which was held on Friday 18th March, 2022, was co-facilitated by Mustapha Koroma from the Petroleum Directorate and Abdul Kaprr Dumbuya, Communications Officer at CSSL.
In addition to oil and gas issues, participants were also introduced to advocacy and public awareness as key approaches to apply in trying to mitigate the negative impacts of oil and gas pollution on the environment.
“I’m happy to have received this training from CSSL. Knowledge gained here will help me and my organization in sensitizing our communities about particularly environmental risks of oil and gas pollution on marine life”, Daniel Macauley from Responsible Eco-tourism (RECTOUR) organization at Number 2 River in Freetown.
